The building permit for De Johan van Beverwijck has arrived. Commissioned by Van Pelt Ontwikkelt, Mei designed a sustainable residential building for healthy urban living at the location of the vacant former ANWB office in Dordrecht. The new building will contain 53 apartments which can be arranged flexible on a commercial plinth full of activity. The plinth is double-height, with generous entrance halls to the apartments. To connect well to the surrounding buildings, the façade at the Spuiboulevard side is divided in three connecting parts which differ in color and texture. The south side at the Beverwijckplaats is more informal. The cascading façade on the sunny side, with a composition of balconies and generous terraces, shows that De Johan van Beverwijck is a real ‘people building’.
