The building plan is designed on a triangular plot and serves as a mediator between a modern shopping mall and the more small-scale, classical Tilburg streets. The faces of four houses are added to IJzerstraat. The staggered houses create natural spaces between each other for patio’s and gardens. This also allows more sunlight to enter this narrow street, and the southern façades of the new houses. In Tilburg more and more sculptural objects disappear from the city’s skyline. With its slim lines and abstract volumes the apartment tower attempts to restore some of the city’s character. The footprint of the 34m high tower is small; 8 x 16 meters. It contains only one double high shop and four double high private apartments. The windows on each side of the tower are positioned at the height, which delivers the best view. Despite the monolith appearance of this tower, the glass surface area equals the floor surface of each apartment.
