In October 2006 META was asked to design a number of dwellings for a new development on the Left Bank of Antwerp. A masterplan was designed by Design-Team Johan Van Reeth, with AWG Architects providing an image quality plan. Five architects were invited to complete this project.
The design consists of 28 individual family-units, a corner module of 4 apartments and a collective car park. The dwellings are distinguished by a diagonal ridge line. This results in an a-typical roof form, which is re-enforced in alternation of units within the block. Through a rigorous application of this roof form in alternation, both uniformity and distinction in plan, surface and programme are created resulting in a rich and varied play of roofs.
The project is currently under construction.
