In the Amsterdam district Westerpark West, a new residential building has been completed called Pepper, designed by Elephant. Westerpark West B.V. was the developer and J.P. van Eesteren, was the contractor for the project.
All 82 apartments had the option for the buyers for a larger window, an extra window, a larger balcony and the possibility of an integrated planter with storage in the balcony. In this way, the end user not only has an emphatic stamp on the living quality of the house but also on the architectural expression of the facades.
Peter van Gelder, project architect Elephant: "What is special about this project is that we have given the buyer a share in the quality of living, by offering more outdoor space, extra daylight and views. This is remarkable for a residential tower, as the user usually only gets involved after permits have been granted and the contractor has completed his work, and where the façade, and therefore the quality of living, is usually no longer adaptable".
