Modern minimalistic tower apartment

Underneath the text, you’ll find more pictures.

A serene oasis nestled in the heart of Rotterdam. Along the historic Wijnhaven, between the bustling Markthal and the flowing Maas river, lies CasaNova: one of the new high-rise icons adorning the skyline of the Maritime District, connecting the Markthal to the banks of the Maas. It’s a luxurious residential tower featuring 116 apartements for sale.

Rotterdam’s Barcode Architects are the masterminds behind the design of this unique triangular tower, emerging from the four-story base along the quay of the Wijnhaven. The distinctive triangular shape ensures every resident enjoys maximum privacy and breathtaking views of Rotterdam.

Perched on one of the highest floors of the building, our clients have found their second home in the Netherlands. It’s a stark contrast to their residence in the southern part of the country, where they trade suburban life for a spacious apartment in the vibrant heart of the city. Centrally located, it’s conveniently close to the University of Rotterdam for their children.

The residence exudes elegance and tranquility, yet it also makes bold statements—such as the bespoke bed with its striking headboard. Our clients aimed for a hotel-chic ambiance, modern yet minimalist. Considering the couple’s frequent travels, interior elements had to be easy to maintain.

DOEN oversaw the entire project from start to finish. From the initial design to the realisation, and the delivery of furniture, lighting and accessories.
