The historical image of De Zuiderhaven is mainly formed by the old warehouses and the majestic residences alongside the canal. At the edge of the city center of Harlingen 6 luxurious apartments arise. They are clustered in a volume in memory of the archetype.
The plot is very deep and widens at the street side. With the split roof the proportion of the block is in balance. This way the block is easily adapted in the morphology of the street.
Behind the vertical openings in the façade terraces generate maximal transparency. The residents enjoy a wide view over the Waddensea. The apartments differ in width on every floor. This way the apartments have different sizes and brings balance to the façade: The apparent split, made by the two roofs, is reversed by the horizontal division of the apartments.
The openings in the façade are subordinate to the brick volume. Towards the street the openings are filled with wooden garage doors. The wood reappears in the façade as shutters. These can be used to repulse the direct sunlight. We used Teak as resemblance to the shipping.
