Living in complete peace and safety on top of and in the middle of the lively center of Almere. It has a reason that this project is attracting enormous national and international architectural interest. And you might be able to live there!
The Citadel is a small residential village in the city center designed by the acclaimed French studio Christian de Portzamparc. Inspired by the former city castles in a new era where modern clean lines are interspersed with surprising shapes and materials. With a raised ground level (described in the architect’s imagination as a magic carpet) and with great diversity in building heights and facade finishing styles, you live here in a very special setting without any concessions.
There are several ways to reach the Citadel. Via the sunken traffic/parking level, the main entrance in the center and (as is an extra and very important addition to this apartment) also via the private parking space in the closed parking garage. Here you can enter your home completely anonymously without encountering anything or anyone in the center, drive into your own parking lot, park and walk to the house via the elevator. A really special feeling in the middle of a center in a city with over 200,000 inhabitants! Come experience it…
Once you have arrived at the Citadel (and also a safe 2nd doorbell panel) you will be amazed by the space and openness. A beautiful setting of the diversity of homes, all with the living experience of a front garden at the lawn and each with his / her own balcony / terrace at the rear, so that you are certainly not forced to always sit ”in front”. One of the most special experiences is the complete tranquility. Really quiet as a mouse, and that right in the middle of the center.
You can simply stroll around the Citadel (beautifully lit at night) and here you will also find all necessary things like the central waste separation locks, (emergency) stairs and a view of the center.
