Text description provided by the architects. View of Suydersee is in a unique location, bordering the Markermeer. The view of the endless water plays an important role for all 26 private properties. The promenade side of the building consists of large glass bay windows with entrances and the stairwells in between. On the side that faces the land, the sun side, all apartments have a spacious balcony. The standard program for each apartment includes a bathroom, kitchen, and a toilet. The rest is free space and can be designed freely. This gives residents optimal freedom of choice.

The apartment building forms the end of two rows of existing buildings that taper towards each other. On the land side the tower marks the conjunction of the two urban development lines. The tower apartments have a large roof garden with views of the Markermeer. By the clever design the building blends perfectly with the existing urban planning but at the same time it is a striking beacon on the dike. Due to the differences in height between the land side and the promenade it is was possible to create a garage below dike level.
