Living with a sustainable appeal

On the edge of Houtwijk, along the bustling Escamplaan, stands the Escampstaete. A beautiful blend of wood, light facade panels, and spacious balconies.

The layered apartment building is one half of a twin block.

The complex is oriented towards the sun, and each of the 12 apartments has its own small garden at the rear.

Many options

The 6-story building is structurally designed in horizontal manner.

Floors are chosen as discs on columns, detached from the facade, and a stabilizing core with stabilizing discs.

This allowed for a flexible facade layout and open floor plans.

As a result, there were 99 options for the 12 apartments, all meeting the specified requirements.
