Studioninedots was commissioned to design this large scale housing project consisting of 590 student houses and 282 apartments for young professionals. My role was that of the Project Architect. The strategy in designing something this big works on three levels. There are two towers that work on the scale of the city. The tallest one points towards the main street, the Cornelis Lelylaan. The other tower points towards the secundary street. Together they work as a landmark and put the train- metro- en busstation Lelylaan on the map. The volume is devided in six smaller volumes surrounding a courtyard to break down the scale. Finally the individual volumes have a pattern in them to break down the scale even more.
