The project

Located along the A13, De Staal will become the new entrance to Delft. This iconic residential tower designed by du Croq & van Zutphen architects is the center of a special neighbourhood being built on the east side of Delft by real estate developer NovaForm.

The residential tower is divided into 3 parts, for which a collaboration has been entered into with three other innovative architectural firms. Under the supervision of duCroq & van Zutphen, Architectural studio AAAN, Studio RAP and CUBE architects each designed part of the residential tower.

Cube Architects has created the architectural design for the middle part of De Staal. In this block, design is combined with the integration of blue solar panels from Solarix, so that the facades of this block will generate energy for the residents in the tower. In the facade design, inspired by a Delft blue vase, Solar Design panels are integrated into the bent facade panels.

Solarix solar facade

Solarix has developed the design for the coloured solar panels in standard dimensions with a blue design from the line collection in reference to the Delft colour palette. The hand-drawn lines at different scale levels and blue and white colour combinations are a direct reference to the craft known in Delft pottery. The solar panels are integrated into the bent facade elements, which as a whole provide a dynamic and refined image that provides a different image from different angles.
