Live/work hybrid accommodation
WoudT's façade is composed of multiple, visually distinct elements, which lends the block a lively and playful character. A massive, three-storey-high cavity halfway along the block provides passage to a vast courtyard garden at the heart of the complex and houses the entrances to the apartments above. The twelve-storey building accommodates 124 three-room apartments of varying size. The ground-floor section at the corner of the Voorburgstraat is designed for business occupation. This section allows for much flexibility regarding subdivision and configuration, and as a result can accommodate a variety of businesses. The section includes six apartments with their own ground floor entrances for first-time entrepreneurs in need of hybrid accommodation: i.e. residential accommodation with in-built workspace of modest proportions. The rear of this live/work section opens out onto a raised platform that overlooks and leads to the courtyard garden.
