URBAN VILLA’S Temse
3 urban villas – with a total of 21 luxury apartments spread across 3 floors – are being planned for an area located on the site of the former Boelwerf in Temse, just in the bend of the Scheldt. A single communal parking garage with one entrance and exit links the three buildings underground. Above the parking garage and between the buildings, a semi-publicly accessible park garden is being constructed up to the towpath on the dyke.
The double-height entrance hall leads to the centrally located lift. The 180m² apartments have a simple layout with bedrooms at the front and the open living space at the back with a view of the Scheldt. Large overhanging terraces are set into the façade. Each penthouse has been conceived as a sculpture in aluminium sheets on top of a half-glass/half brick volume with 3 higher volumes.
