The designers of Zebra Waterdwellings focus primarily on the elaboration of waterside housing along the canal. Two typologies are proposed. A wide and relatively low, multi-level housing block runs in steps from the quay to the water. The lowest housing units are therefore situated immediately adjacent to the water. The building has an impressive cantilever on the quay. The second building is further on, also parallel to the water. In addition to housing, this higher building also has retail space, offices and a day-care centre.
