HORN: POWERFULLY COMFORTABLE
“We wanted to capture the power of the view in the very building. The lower floors embody the water, whereas the upper floors allow the famed Dutch skies to stand out in all their glory”, Patrick Meijer of Orange Architects. Horn’s two lower floors are open and elongated for a panoramic look and feel. Deservingly, the views of the IJ get pride of place. The uniform windows set a tranquil tone and keep the building firmly grounded. The upper floors, on the other hand, refer to the area’s industrial past, with large windows punctuating the bold, imposing plates of corten steel. The penthouse is the building’s crowning glory, with the spacious roof terrace offering stunning views over the IJ.
Horn was designed by Orange Architects. While the first floor of the building will have a white concrete façade, its top floor façades will be made of corten steel, a clear reference to the area’s industrial past. The colour of this material morphs over time, resulting in ever-changing hues and visuals. Bold and imposing. Boasting this steel exterior, Horn will soon be one of the major architectural eye-catchers on the IJ. The entrance to the building deserves to be highlighted, as its warm, premium combinations of oak and steel will provide a striking contrast to the bold exterior.

13 UNIQUE APARTMENTS
The apartments inside are no less vibrant than the building’s exterior, and as every apartment has its own little niches and quirks, no two of them are the same. The number of apartments on each floor also differs, with the top three floors each housing but one apartment for optimal privacy. The sixth and seventh floor are home to a one-of-a-kind apartment, a double-layer penthouse abounding in playful details and finishes, and with two terraces and a galleried landing on the IJ-side connecting the two floors. As a result, the building’s versatility and variety will also be visible from the outside. The second floor of this apartment is home to a wonderfully light space, with French doors and a spacious roof terrace. The fourth and fifth floors are no less unique, housing lofts full of character that exude a sense of space and occupy an entire floor. The first floor apartments come with spacious terraces, and several apartments will have galleried landings that are nothing short of spectacular. As an added bonus, many apartments will even have double bathrooms. Horn comprises a wide range of apartments that have one thing in common, they’re all unique.
LUXURY KITCHEN AND BATHROOM
All apartments can be featured with a beautiful, fully finished kitchen by Piet Boon Kitchen. The designs are marked by unique shapes, ratios, combinations of colours and materials and production techniques, which showcase a contemporary vision on kitchen life. To give all new residents the option of picking a kitchen that seamlessly matches their needs, four different types of kitchens have been created. Each apartment has its own design, so the dimensions and layouts of the kitchen differ from one apartment to the next. Prospective buyers will have the opportunity to work with the designers of Piet Boon Kitchen to put together a kitchen of their liking.
The bathrooms and plumbing exude luxury and offer supreme comfort. The meticulous finishes have been designed to mesh seamlessly with the layouts and floor space of the various apartments, with Tortu products and materials serving as the common denominator. Tortu stands for a perfect combination of quality, functionality and design and has a very wide range of products.
