Diener & Diener architects . vai

The development of the Kattendijkdok, consisting of new residential buildings, business, culture and leisure centres in the midst of old dock buildings and the harbour basin, is a recent urban extension project instigated by the city of Antwerp. The two areas comprising the harbour are connected along the Falconplein - Nassaustraat axis, and the outlines of the multi-storey buildings are visible form the city centre. A total of three pairs of towers are planned for the Westkaai. Diener & Diener were commissioned for the first pair, along the southern section of the harbour basin, close by Amsterdamstraat. The guidelines stated that the towers should be similar but not identical.
