Lighthouse Corner serves as a vibrant meeting point for hotel guests, Nieuwpoort residents, and passers-by, fostering daily dialogue. The large glass features at The CORNR Hotel's entrance and lounge create a transparent atmosphere, while ensuring optimal privacy for hotel rooms and Residence Lighthouse Corner apartments. With a striking balance between openness and seclusion, Lighthouse Corner stands out as an architectural landmark, welcoming visitors as a gateway to Nieuwpoort.
The building façade is adorned with slats made from UHPC/UHSB, creating a bright green exterior when adorned with greenery attached to these slats. Alongside cantilevered terraces, they serve as structural sun protection for the apartments. These slats complement the natural stone façade, while window widths are aligned with the natural stone modules and finished with elegant anthracite joinery. Main contractor Constant Deblaere oversaw the site, with project manager Jeroen Maenhout noting several unique aspects of the project. The installation of UHPC slats presented its own set of challenges, expertly managed with proactive support from Enjoy Concrete.
