David Chipperfield's Unparalleled Architectural Artistry in Antwerpen

Antwerpen, known as the diamond capital of the world, dazzles visitors with its radiant beauty. As we walk along the banks of the Scheldt River, we are greeted by magnificent architecture, where Gothic spires reach for the sky and elegant Baroque facades exude grandeur. It is no surprise that the great Flemish painter, Peter Paul Rubens, found his muse in this city. His masterpieces grace the walls of the Royal Museum of Fine Arts, inviting us to step into a world of artistic brilliance.

But Antwerpen’s charm extends far beyond its rich artistic heritage. In the thriving neighborhood of Nieuw Zuid, a beautiful new addition will soon emerge, featuring the extraordinary craftsmanship of renowned architect David Chipperfield and our esteemed family-owned development partner Triple Living.

Known for their masterful creations that blend elegance and functionality, Chipperfield and Triple Living will grace Antwerpen with “Boomgaard,” a remarkable contemporary architectural gem. Rising gracefully amidst the surrounding residential buildings crafted by visionary architects, like Stefano Boeri, Robbrecht en Daem, Max Dudler, or Shigeru Ban, Boomgaard will stand as a testament to Chipperfield’s unparalleled artistry.

With sleek lines, harmonious proportions, and smooth integration into the urban landscape, this forthcoming structure will captivate both the eye and the imagination, embodying the spirit of innovation and excellence that defines Nieuw Zuid—a testament to the enduring power of great design in shaping the future of our cities.

Triple Living’s commitment to creating vibrant city neighborhoods with a strong identity, thoughtful architecture, and a green character aligns with the vision of Nieuw Zuid. With David Chipperfield’s impressive achievements, including the recent Pritzker Architecture Prize, his expertise adds to the project’s prestige and reinforces its architectural excellence.

Boomgaard offers a boutique collection of high-quality, energy-efficient, and customizable new-build residential flats. The design incorporates high ceilings and thoughtful interior finishing with warm woodwork, creating a spacious and pleasant atmosphere.

The flats range from one to three bedrooms and offer spaciousness while maintaining a homely feel. The unique feature of corner flats and see-through flats with two winter gardens, transformed by sliding windows into covered terraces, allows residents to enjoy outdoor spaces and the beautiful indoor garden throughout the four seasons.

The winter gardens also provide ecological value, acting as a buffer against natural elements and contributing to energy efficiency and climate-proof living. The project follows strict insulation and energy standards, with a hybrid structure of concrete and wood minimizing carbon dioxide emissions.

The mission of contemporary architects and real estate enterprises extends beyond creating mere structures and developments; they are the authors of human experiences, orchestrating spaces that shape the very essence of our lives.

Our architectural animations and visualizations empower them to bridge the gap between imagination and reality, to craft a compelling narrative that resonates with individuals and communities. Through the artistry of visualization, we can transport people into the future, enabling them to see, feel, and inhabit the spaces architects create.

Our concept for the Boomgaard Residential transcends the boundaries of conventional architectural animations. It is a visually stunning journey that attracts viewers through a symphony of vibrant colors, captivating scenes, and an exploration of spaces within the building. Each space, both inside and outside, is showcased with a unique mood, briefly flashing the viewer to different areas representing precious memories.

The animation also highlights the project’s key features, such as a peaceful and green environment, a young and middle-aged community, and easy access to great restaurants.

Join us on this journey as we uncover the new treasure of Antwerpen, where tradition and innovation converge in perfect harmony.

Sir David Chipperfield is one of the most influential British architects and designers of our time. With his contextual vision and impeccable attention to detail, Sir David has earned international acclaim and reference status. What sets him apart is his commitment to sober and modest architecture, one that embraces the local embeddedness and historical context of each project. He understands that true quality of life are paramount, and this philosophy resonates throughout his firm, David Chipperfield Architects, with offices in London, Berlin, Milan, and Shanghai. His influence is not confined to theoretical discussions but is visible in the more than a hundred designs for cultural, public, residential, and commercial buildings, as well as numerous urban planning projects, that have garnered international recognition and awards. From the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize to the EU’s Mies van der Rohe Award, Sir David’s firm has consistently showcased excellence in design and innovation.

Triple Living’s ultimate goal is to create sustainable, green urban neighborhoods where people can live, work, and socialize. The partnership between Skyline Europe and Group Minerva gave birth to Triple Living when the opportunity arose to develop the old railroad site near Antwerp South in 2010. Since then, the transformation of these sites has yielded remarkable results, such as the vibrant new urban district of Nieuw Zuid and the notable Slachthuissite in Antwerp. They are also actively engaged in the construction of a low-energy neighborhood in the park of Wilrijk, a new neighborhood in Rotterdam, and the highly sought-after Duinenwater residential development in Knokke. With a focus on overseeing the construction, development, and delivery of their projects, they collaborate closely with city and town councils, as well as their valued partners, and our studio to ensure the realization and communication of impactful and meaningful developments.
