    BINST ARCHITECTS

Throughout our history, architecture and nature have always sought each other out and been brought together. This project would like to symbolise this. Sand, dune grass and natural stone are the DNA of this design which, in its horizontality, simplicity and class, reinforces this context as a clear anchor point and is keen to upgrade it as a beautiful place to live. Architecture has an important social and qualitative added value in the innovative definition and unification of a place, of a site that lacks coherence today and where there is no form of stylised order and architectural tranquillity. This tranquillity is present in the typical dune character and is the central starting point for the development around the park. Large glass surfaces combined with an alternating patchwork of natural stone form the layout of the façade that, with accents of etched glass in dune motif, absorbs the IJzerpark in the living experience and look of this project. A crown of glass bay windows, residential glasshouses at roof level, characterise the gabarit as an abstracted dune on the roof, which being the same shade of sand and material, fits nicely with the whole as a large ‘architectural residential dune’ in the IJzerpark.
