Despite their care needs assessment, the future residents of Zuidoever will be given full control of their own lives to the greatest extent possible, and the building is specifically designed to enable this. Seventeen apartments will be constructed on the ground floor and the first two floors, with two apartments for couples to be constructed on the third floor. The apartments will overlook a beautiful and spacious garden on the outside, as well as a winter garden with a glass roof situated inside the complex. As a result, the residents can go ‘outside’ practically all year round. An underground car park with ten parking spaces will also be constructed. The building stands out thanks to its greenery, such as the winder garden, green roofs and integrated flower boxes on both the inside and outside of the balustrades in the communal access areas.
