Apartments Wilnis

The building with 15 luxurious apartments, the largest being a penthouse of 250 m², is at the outskirts of Wilnis village, along a dike with a view on the “Veldzijde” polder. In comparison with the small-scale houses in the surrounding area, it has an exorbitant size, which is not disguised, but not accentuated either. The task has been taken as an experiment in shape: a building as an object, which is basic in its composition, yet refined in its materialisation and details. 

The side walls, executed in stone, emphasise the total transparency of the frontage. The storey-high glass façades between the outwards collaring floors give this frontage a strong horizontal articulation, oriented towards the landscape. The lines of the façade roughly follow this landscape: the ground floor bends with the curve in the dike, while the upper floors are set back in random dips, thus creating space for enormous sun terraces.
