  2. 2. Assignment Renovation and Rehabilitation of Helmond’s water tower Two proposed programs: - Luxurious apartments with a public viewing platform - Artist residences with workshops and an exhibition space
  3. 3. General Information Helmond, a city in Southeast-Brabant, is a pleasant city with historical ties and has 86.000 inhabitants. After a stormy and energetic development, Helmond has recently evolved into modern city with large aspirations regarding architecture for instance. Being the fifth largest city of Brabant, Helmond is a centre which seems to keep growing in its appeal. Famous nationally and internationally, are the cities Dierdonk and Brandevoort area, where housing has been based on historical architecture. The water tower it self has also had a stormy history. It had to be rebuilt three times before it would stay upright and WWII made it that much harder to finish the design. But through it all the tower was finished in 1948 and has been in use up and until the 1990’s.

  5. 5. Gertjan Rohaan <ul><li>Design principles </li></ul><ul><li>The route through the park has to bend because of the extension </li></ul><ul><li>A strong visual line is made to this extension </li></ul><ul><li>In this extension the individual exhibition rooms are situated: shop window </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>All additions made to the water tower are temporary: </li></ul><ul><li>The two extra towers are built up like scaffolding to show their finiteness </li></ul><ul><li>The inside additions are made of ‘click systems’ to maintain maximum flexibility </li></ul>Gertjan Rohaan
  7. 7. <ul><li>All the main functions, for example the living space and workshop are placed in the old tower. Vertical transport up to the water tank is placed in the additional towers </li></ul><ul><li>In the water reservoir is the main exposition space. Also for ‘foreign artists’ </li></ul><ul><li>Artists who live in the water tower can distinguish themselves from the ‘foreign artists’ in the added tower: in their personal exhibition space. </li></ul>Gertjan Rohaan
  8. 8. <ul><li>Water tank </li></ul><ul><li>Exhibition space </li></ul><ul><li>To experience the former most important part of the water tower, a route is created around and through the concrete </li></ul><ul><li>The route begins in the ‘lekkamer’. Where people can continue by stairs or use the 2 nd elevator </li></ul><ul><li>This path ends at the top of the tower, where there’s a vantage point </li></ul>Gertjan Rohaan
  9. 9. Individual results Laura Mol Helix
  10. 10. Laura Mol <ul><li>Design principles </li></ul><ul><li>Luxurious apartments </li></ul><ul><li>Each apartment has a different view of the landscape </li></ul><ul><li>Two extensions: both containing an elevator and staircases </li></ul><ul><li>The path through the park has been moved in such a way that passers-by now move through the water tower </li></ul>
  11. 11. Laura Mol <ul><li>Design concept </li></ul><ul><li>To achieve each apartment having a different view a helix is introduced </li></ul><ul><li>In doing so the apartments not only have a different view because of their difference in height but also in their difference in orientation </li></ul><ul><li>The ‘Helix’ ends at the ‘lekkamer’ </li></ul>
  12. 12. Laura Mol First floor Second floor Third floor Rotating floor plans
  13. 13. Laura Mol <ul><li>Lekkamer </li></ul><ul><li>Here the visitors cross over from the outer elevators to the inner elevator </li></ul><ul><li>This cross over gives the visitors the chance to experience the surroundings from different heights and different vantage points </li></ul><ul><li>Water tank </li></ul><ul><li>The penthouses are situated in the water tank </li></ul>
