The Hatert Housing apartment complex in Nijmegen, Netherlands is dynamic and bold in its design. The irregularly shaped structure was created by 24H Architecture to become the newest central point of Hatert.

The twelve-storey apartment tower consists of a central structure that is enveloped by free-formed balconies. The organic shape of these balconies move in opposing directions and ultimately resemble dominant sculptural forms. The versatile complex features a parking area that will serve as a central public space for city citizens while the building’s ground floor will be used as a community health center.

The perforated balconies of the Hatert Housing apartment complex dominate its form and resemble strips of Scotch tape. The reoccurring forms move in varying directions that create a multidimensional layering effect while putting an emphasis on volume.
