1st Prize Cadix Antwerp

HCVA together with London-based Stephen Taylor Architects won the competition for the design of two apartment buildings in the Antwerp docklands district of Cadix. The project is part of Block C2 of the area redevelopment plan and comprises 55 rental and owner-occupied dwellings, a car park and a child care centre.
The two buildings stand diagonally opposite one another and display a certain affinity in architectural language, materialization and dimensional system. Special attention is paid to the detailing of the entrance areas and the tectonic legibility of the elevations. The project client is Woonhaven Antwerpen; construction is scheduled to commence in early 2014.
