Cordeel builds Kaaigebouw in blooming Boom
As the elongated Kaaigebouw is flanked by the quay on one side and the market on the other, the building has sunny patios overlooking the water and spacious outdoor areas overlooking the city. Three stacked layers, each comprising different materials and each with a unique look, enhance the characteristic identity of the complex’s different functions. By integrating the footpath at the base of the building into the design, a high-quality connection was created between the city centre and the Rupel river. High windows in the outer façade, clad in the same elegant stone as the MAS in Antwerp, make for surprisingly bright apartments.
