International Facade Community

Public houses Blok 10 Moerwijk, The Hague, Netherlands

The Moerwijk housing estate – originally designed by Dudok – will be in the next years partly removed. Within the new urban plan of KCAP the housing block along the Erasmusweg will be one of the first steps of the urban renewal operation. The block consists out of a social housing flat with gallery-access apartments and maisonette housing at the ground floor and a strip of terraced houses with voids. Both buildings are connected with a parking garage at ground floor level with a semi-public deck on the top.

Public houses Blok 10 Moerwijk, The Hague, Netherlands

The apartments in the housing project are opened by a gallery. On the ground level the houses have two floors. The transparency of the facade makes it a real eye catcher in its surrounding an it offers a real connection between the outside and interior. The lightly grey tone of the glazing together with champagne coloured profiles provides the complex a high standard look. The high windows are with 5 meters extremely wide shaped. The façade on one side has sliding systems, each sliding element measures 2,6 to 2,6 meters. The hole building has a very decent architecture, made by Atelier Kempe Tiel architects in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Although the façade looks simply designed, it cost the fabricator a lot of preparation in assembling and mounting. Fact is that the glazing facades mounted in aluminium profiles pass the construction over the hole elevation. This eventually leads to a higher risk of sound leakages. To prevent this the fabricator used packages and isolation materials in each connection detail. Another aspect of good preparation is the expected deformation of the corner profiles. To avoid greater deformation than 2mm, the fabricator used steel plates over the whole width.

The whole engineering, assembling and mounting is done by Schüco partner de Groot en Visser, Gorinchem, Netherlands
