The plan consists of three urban design fragments: a: 'The super block', a closed building block with courtyard houses in the inner grounds. b: 'The estate', a fragment with a strip of larger houses alongside the railway and three blocks of patio houses. c: A 50-metre-high apartment block on the inland harbour above a built parking facility.
The main type of house in the diamond-shaped 'super block' is type D: 57 broad town houses, with a grid width of 5.10m on three and partly four levels.
For the four corners, each of which is different, 13 contrasting broad, shallow town houses were developed. All the houses have their own front door on the street, with an internal garage and garden. On the inner grounds, there are 15 10.80-metre-wide courtyard houses (type B), also with an internal garage, situated around an elongated wedge-shaped inner square. This square is also the north-south route through the block with a connection to the western harbour square.
'The estate' has been executed in its entirety as a single paved floor with buildings above and separate green and play elements. On the railway side, the estate is bordered by a row of 31 5.40-metre-wide larger drive-in houses (type C), also on three levels. On the western side of the estate, there are three blocks of patio houses situated back-to-back.
The blocks vary in length and comprise a total of 48 houses, 5.10 m wide. There is the option to have the living space on the ground floor with a patio or on the upper floor with a roof terrace. All the houses have been implemented in red brickwork (in two colours) with clear anodized window frames.
In order to leave space at street level, the decision was made to build a 50-metre-high tower block instead of a larger number of medium-high buildings. This has been positioned in such a way that all the houses can benefit optimally from the sun and the view (Sloterplas lake); axes have also been incorporated from the surroundings. Besides the 16 residential floors with 59 three-room flats, the building comprises an entrance level with storerooms for the residents and a half-submerged level with storerooms and garage. Generally speaking, the living area in the apartments is spread over two structural bays, so that there is always a good dining area.
In order to give the outdoor spaces practical value, particularly at a great height, they have been implemented as verandas. All the houses have sprung floors.
Each façade has been given a different expression by means of large elements such as the 'eyes' (the larger houses lie behind), the recessed balcony, the staircase and the entrance. The choice was made to give the tower anthracite-grey slate cladding (lightweight, level, expressive and natural), partly because bricklaying at this building height would be rather forced. The clear anodized aluminium frames are flush-fitted with the slates. The garage surface is provided with a moss-sedum vegetation roof, while the rising walls are composed simply of anthracite-coloured compression grating, to allow for natural ventilation.
