Last Friday I was invited to explore the Piekstraat area, now a hidden part of Rotterdam, and to take some pictures of it.
Piekstraat is an awesome, raw, and industrial part of the city called “Eiland van Feijenoord”.
The site is such a special environment where soon a new residential tower, with loft houses, will be built thanks to KCAP Architecten, an internationally operating design firm specialized in sustainable architecture and flexible urban design.
From that location, you can appreciate an amazing view of the river Maas.
There are also water buses, that connect Piekstraat (Feijenoord) with Plantagelaan (Kralingen).
One of the things I like most is that this Project promotes a sustainable lifestyle with, for example, solar panels on the roof, CO2 controller ventilation, a smart thermostat to adapt the home to your lifestyle, and a garage prepared for 100% electric car use.
There is a lot more to know about Piekstraat Project. If you are curious here you go to the link to find everything you want to know.
Could you imagine yourself living here?
