Vlietpoort

The inland harbour with its surrounding buildings is an oasis of tranquillity n a noisy environment. The living rooms and bedrooms are situated at the quiet interior. The front doors, stairways, the bathrooms and storage rooms are situated on the outside behind a “deaf” facade. The alternation of dark masonry and sloping metal gives the facade a nautical character.

The residential tower with its 17 storeys is standing as a slender beacon on the top of the harbour. The semi-circular apartments located here have a 180 degrees panoramic view on the vast polder landscape. The shops and offices are located along the provincial road. The inclined glass storefronts and the expressive volume of offices form a distinctive landmark at the bridge.
