The apartment block on the Sloterplas (lake) is a component of the ‘Meer en Oever’ renovation plan drawn up by KuiperCompagnons. In this plan, the existing Meer en Vaart boulevard has been extended in a straight line, with a different architectural principle being applied on either side of the lane. To the west, there is the original structure with rectangular building blocks. On the east side, there is a loose composition of three building volumes. Within this configuration, the high-rise apartment block ought to function as the accent of the suburb, the beacon. Because the regulations prohibit the building protruding above the surroundings, the allure has not been sought in an emphasis of the height but rather in the form of the building. The apartment block is a pure cylinder that rests upon a narrow substructure by means of an eaves-like construction, which lends it the appearance of an archetypical water tower. The tower stands on a ‘terp’ (a terp is a historical artificial dwelling mound) accommodating the parking places. It is crowned by roof gardens lined with greenery.
