New construction of multi-family dwellings with commercial space and underground car park
Project Dock 5 is located in Victorialaan in Ostend. The project concerns a semi-detached building and represents phase 11 of the Oosteroever global master plan for the public space, compiled by Palmbout Urban Landscapes in 2012.
Dock 5 comprises twenty spacious apartments benefitting from a front and rear façade, a penthouse and commercial space on the ground floor. There is a two-storey underground car park below the building housing the multi-family dwellings. Together with those of the other buildings, this car park forms a single large underground car park, and is situated below the green inner area.
The section of apartments extends across the front façade, creating a neat façade grid. The horizontal and vertical strips of the grid are interrupted in function of the terraces. The breastwork protrudes from the rear façade, which consists of smaller windows, forming a playful accent.
The terraces at the front, with their north-easterly orientation benefit from the nature, the sea and historic panoramas. People can enjoy a more urban view from the terraces at the rear with their south-westerly orientation. Access to the terraces is provided via sliding doors that span the width of the front and rear façades. This offers maximum light and guarantees quality living and housing.
The dark brick façade and the black aluminium joinery were supplemented by a third material at the master builder’s request: aluminium façade cladding with standing seams at irregular distances. This provides the façade with an additional vertical detail, which is repeated in the breastwork of the first floor.3
