• Energy-efficient Residence ‘Frans Zand’: A Sustainable Highlight in Heist-op-den-Berg

    In the bustling municipality of Heist-op-den-Berg, Vanhout Projects has completed a new project: the brand new residence ‘Frans Zand’. With an impressive 1,200 square metres of commercial and office space and 21 modern flats, this project is not only an architectural masterpiece, but also a paragon of sustainable living. Pharmacy ‘GOED’ (CM) and the White Yellow Cross, among others, have moved into this complex.

    The design of Residence ‘Frans Zand’ is well thought-out and reflects a harmonious unity between the business spaces on the ground floor and the elegant flats above. A crucial aspect of the project is its strong focus on energy efficiency.

    Sustainability in Action

    Energy efficiency is no longer an optional feature, but rather an essential pillar in modern building projects. The E levels of the flats at Residence ‘Frans Zand’ are all below E-20.

    The choice for the Karma White facing brick adds an extra dimension to the aesthetics of the two buildings.

    In one building, the Karma White facing brick was bonded. This creates a seamless look and emphasises the clean lines of the building. The white facing brick, gives a timeless elegance to the exterior.

    In the second building, the Karma White facing brick was traditionally installed with a tone-on-tone joint. This technique, where the colour of the joint is the same as that of the brick, results in a uniform appearance.

    The bright, fresh look of the Karma White facing brick perfectly matches the modern architecture of Residence ‘Frans Zand’. The white facing brick gives the buildings a contemporary look.

    Conclusion: A Statue of Sustainable Living and Working

    Residence ‘Frans Zand’ in Heist-op-den-Berg is a statement about the future of living and working. With this handsome project, Vanhout Projects proves that sustainability and style can go hand in hand.
