DELFT VOLT

VOLT, a residential building complex located in Delft, shows an exciting and differentiated building ensemble of three volumes that stagger in height and enclose an inviting and characteristic public courtyard. This hidden complex relates to the urban characteristic of Delft and more specifically to the famous and historical ‘Prinsenhof’. The building has an inviting human character and can be seen as a direct enrichment for both the neighborhood and the city. The design is furthermore characterized by its surprisingly and contrasting differentiation in material expression between the outer façade and the inner courtyard façade, generating a pleasant and unexpected spatial quality. By this playful ambiguity the design will assert itself as one of the future high-profile projects in the Delft railway redevelopment zone.
