Free formed wave-like balconies ‘dance’ around the body of this housing block making it a recognisable landmark for the area. Perforated balconies inspired by the leaf structure add to its lightness adding another dimension to its sculpturesque qualities.

In the area Hatert, on the edge of the city of Nijmegen, the housing corporations Portaal and Talis organize a great renewal operation. Most of the current housing does not comply with contemporary standards or needs a substantial make over.
For this operation the city of Nijmegen worked in cooperation with the office of Khandekar towards a masterplan in which most of the present houses are renovated or renewed. Besides this upgrading, the open areas in the neighbourhood will be filled with several new housing projects.
A twelve storey apartment tower is planned in the very centre of Hatert, which is presently empty. The building is meant to become the new ‘crown’ of Hatert.
24H architecture designed a sturdy tower with free formed balconies around, which make a recognizable sculpture from all directions. The parking for the apartments is organized underneath a raised deck that will function as a new public space for the citizens of Hatert. Underneath the housing program the ground floor will be used as a community health centre.
