Valley

Valley will be a real eye-catcher thanks to its daring and individualistic architecture. The building, whose flourishing patios create a striking green ‘facade-landscape’, will accommodate offices, residences and facilities. It will be located on Beethovenstraat, opposite ABN AMRO and next to Sportpark Goed Genoeg (AFC).

Valley helps to fulfil the municipality’s desire to develop a multifaceted city district for people to live, work and visit. From the ground floor to the seventh floor, the building will accommodate offices, cultural facilities, retail, catering facilities and access to the residential towers. The residential section – starting on the eighth floor – will feature 196 apartments varying in size from 55m² to 700m², practically all of which will be for rent.

The main feature of the design is the overwhelming abundance of greenery, which combines with the stone finishing to give it the look and feel of an exuberant green valley. The courtyard garden – situated on the lower storeys of the building and accessible to all – amplifies this effect even further. The different levels of the courtyard garden are linked by staircases.
