Rotterdam-based firm wins competition to design pair of residential blocks in Antwerp 


Atelier Kempe Thill has recently won the European tender for the transformation of two apartment blocks in the district Rozemaai, Antwerp. In the closed competition five teams were involved.

The site, located next to the nature park ‘de Oude Landen’, calls for an intensification of the relationship with the environment on the one hand, on the other hand to deal with the noise from the highway and the harbour. By creating a new glazed gallery and by closing the open-air areas by using a full glass façade a noise barrier is created around the building. This barrier is also used as a climate buffer to improve the energy performance of the buildings.

By installing new elevators and staircases the buildings are easily accessible for disabled people. Within the existing structure a wide variety of dwellings is offered. On the ground floor are duplex houses with private gardens are created. The project will be realised in collaboration with Osar architects, Antwerp and Land, landscape architects Antwerp.
