The Water Tower,


Sustainable residential apartments


Challenge. Create. Care.

The original village of 's-Gravendeel was founded in 1593 and is popular with people who love peace and quiet. The village is picturesquely situated on the Dordtse Kil river and has the amenities of a large city nearby. A new neighbourhood, “Bij de Watertoren”, has been constructed on the outskirts of the village



This new neighbourhood offers of a wide variety of housing: townhouses, clusters of two and three semi-detached houses, row houses and 19 apartments. The homes are not connected to the traditional natural gas network and will all be fitted with one or more solar panels. Comfort and sustainability are central throughout the entire neighbourhood.

The apartment building has an indoor parking garage. A finish of Heraklith wood wool cement boards was chosen in order to ensure pleasant acoustics in this space. Heratekta wood wool combi boards with grey EPS were chosen. This insulation provides the higher apartments with the required thermal insulation for increased living comfort. .



Heratekta wood wool cement boards have the natural hue of wood and fit in with the sustainable nature of this residential project. Heraklith wood wool boards are ideal for projects with sustainability certification such as BREEAM, WELL and LEED.
