The apartment building La Grande Cour was the first completed building on the newly regenerated Westerdokseiland. The redevelopment is part of the large-scale development along the south bank of the IJ. The urban plan by Peter Defesche (OD205) made a clear distinction between the buildings along the IJ (high-scale) and on the other hand the city centre side (small-scale). La Grande Cour is the most southern of the three urban blocks. The architecture of the south block is allocated to three architects. Each office was given a courtyard and a periscope tower to develop. During the planning process continual coordination between the three schemes was paramount in order to ensure a unified architectural outcome, similarly a high level of attention was given to the architectural details. The three courtyards (cours) each contain a more individual architecture. They all have varying heights, the IJ side (eastern side) is higher than the western edge.
