Residences Cuijk By Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur 1

Completed by Jeanne Dekkers Architectuur in 2009 for Mooiland Maasland, Residences Cuijk is an apartment building project. This building sits on the waterfront in a new residential area in Cuijk. It has a volume that stacks up in height and the use of warm red bricks can create a striking appearance to it.

This apartment building consists of 60 flats for the elderly, an underground car park, and also 3000 m² of commercial space with related functions. The volume of the building stacks up in height and it relates to the surrounding buildings on the site. The facade has kinks that provide a dynamic foreshortening of the perspective and an articulation of the building mass. These kinks also shorten the gallery and ensure all flats have a water view.

The kinks also generate an attractive route from the main entrance to each flat of the building. In the volume, the open portal can connect the site behind and the existing houses with the water. It leads to the main entrance of the commercial space naturally on the ground floor. On the lakeside, the elongated, horizontal facade highlights the ship-like image of the building and its contrast with the vertical brick piers. With warm red brick, a striking appearance can be created and providing an awesome asset for the neighborhood.
