Each apartment has at least one balcony, depending on the size of the apartment. This extends the actual living space outward and promotes dialogue with the surroundings. Story-high, wide sliding windows make it possible to create additional loggias. The terraces provide plenty of light inside and for the spatial appearance The Grid.
Thanks to the method of stacking, each resident can enjoy sufficient privacy for the outdoor spaces. By planting these private outdoor spaces, the complex will, within our ambition, become increasingly green over the years. A special rainwater drainage system is integrated into the construction that takes into account the stepped shape of the terraces.
The Grid is a modern translation of the early 19th century luxury residential hotel with a central lobby in the double-height plinth. The transparent lobby forms the heart of the complex and offers a view from the street to the green courtyard. The openness of the plinth also works in reverse, as it connects the residents with the outside world, with the new district of Overhoeks.
This central space has the function of an extra "living room" or lounge, open to all residents. A specially designed piece of furniture facilitates various uses. Residents can gather here for informal meetings, a birthday party or to read a book overlooking the communal green courtyard.
