at the Website of the 'Poort van Breda'
Poort van Breda is a characteristic complex consisting of
58 luxury apartments, designed by the Belgian architect
Charles Vandenhove, finished in 2000. With its splendid
and remarkable design it is one of the most prominent buildings
of the town, and for every citizen of Breda it is a well
known, special eye-catcher. Especially the proud tower with
its silver coloured roof is a true sensation. In 2001 the
majority of the inhabitants of Breda choose the building
as winner of the Architecture price, meant for the most
beautiful, and/or most special building in town during the
period 1997 - 2000.
apartment complex fits perfectly in the old heart of the
town of Breda. On the one hand it is a building with classical
charisma - the architect had in mind to recall the old defences
(town wall with towers), besides fitting to the surrounding
19th century houses.
The special design with its zinc roofs and red facing brick,
the use of classical decorations as capitals and half-round
columns can at the same time be characterised as a marvellous
example of 'post-modern' architecture.
complex is situated in the centre of Breda, at the canal
that encloses the old heart of the town, very near the 'Valkenbergpark',
that counts as one of the most beautiful city parks of the
Netherlands. The shopping centre, the historic heart of
the town with the 'Grote Markt' (marketplace) and the 'Grote
Kerk' (church) at one side, and the railway station at the
other side, are all on walking distance of a few minutes.
apartment of the 58 is unique in layout and design. Modern
conveniences, such as a common, nicely decorated inner courtyard,
as well as a safe underground parking garage guarantee comfortable
living. From our own experience we know that the Poort van
Breda is also at the inside sensational
to be lived
