Pier 4 proposes a single intervention for giving Havenkwartier a new identity and impulse: the addition of a robust and recognisable building. The basis of the building design is a monolithic volume that is formed by a number of morphological modifications into a curl-shaped housing block. A yacht-basin and four floating houses are added to the housing block, which comprises maisonettes, apartments, ground-level access houses and commercial spaces. The housing units are connected by a gallery that follows the upwardly-curving line of the construction volume.
