Collective housing Balk van Beel is part of the Tweewaters city masterplan and comprises 101 apartments, 2,400m² of commercial space and underground parking for 400 cars. On the ground floor it also contains small shops and services and three lobbies to the apartments above, where every inhabitant has a bicycle rack and home delivery box. The five storeys are staggered relative to each other, giving the building a strong note of elegance and attractive outdoor spaces for the apartments. Balk van Beel received a prestigious BREEAM award twice (2012 and 2013), was praised as an 'outstanding' building in the area of sustainability with a score of 87.8% and emerged as winner in the international comparison with all other buildings in its category. Due to its excellent thermal and acoustic insulation, high recycling percentage and renewable energy sources, its intelligent energy use and sustainable choices of material, it was also nominated by MIPIM in the category Best Innovative Building.
