The mixed-use retail and residential complex is located on the Guldenvlieslaan, between the two historical gates the Naamse and Louizapoort. Essential to the design is the urban context and the connection to the existing buildings. In addition, the programme and the sustainable aspects of the project form decisive elements. The strong verticality of the existing facade rhythm was continued in the design for the Entre Les Deux Portes building. The duality of the programme (retail and apartments) is translated into the façade design by means of V-shaped portals which act as a visual link between the two functions. These portals further create diversity and rhythm in the facade, in addition to emphasising the terrace spaces of the upper apartments. Entre Les Deux Portes contains high end apartments, 13,000 m2 of commercial space and 400 parking spaces.
