In the discussions for the preliminary design of the site, the city of Leuven revealed its desire for the façades to have a more vertical appearance. This was because both the surrounding buildings and the original ones have a strong verticality about them. However, the scale of the project, with its 80 apartments, meant that it had horizontal lines. So, to go some way towards meeting this requirement, we conceived of the idea of adding vertical sliding elements to the balconies.
