Noorderhaven Kade Noord

A new state of living

Kade Noord is a new residential complex located at the Noorderhaven in Zutphen. It is located in one of the most beautiful spots in the new city district of Noorderhaven, which will feature places to live and work, and is being developed on what used to be ‘De Mars’ industrial area. Commissioned by Heijmans Vastgoed, Zecc Architecten and KCAP architects & urban planners have designed a city block that features 134 unique homes arranged around an enclosed central courtyard and parking facility set below ground level.


The project is a contemporary interpretation of the elegant white buildings that overlook the River IJssel in Zutphen’s historic old town. There are echoes of this inspiration around the entire block thanks to the contemporary application of the classical building frontage, split into three horizontal sections. The ground-level section features Belgian bluestone and provides a connecting element between the various vertical sections. This level also features different types of entrances, provides access to the parking facility and a high gateway into the central courtyard area. The allusion to the buildings along the River IJssel is also expressed in the various shades of white, such as white decorative plasterwork elements, white paintwork and the use of light-coloured bricks in the building frontage. The different building typologies can be viewed separately, but they also borrow from each other within the design of the building frontage and the modern detailing. The careful alternation of bay windows, balconies, recessed balconies and setbacks creates a unique richness along the front of the building. Just as the historic city of Zutphen has grown over time and therefore features different buildings dating from different periods, the same richness can be found at Kade Noord through the subtle interplay between the different styles of home.

The plan includes a diverse range of typologies – from compact apartments and maisonettes to penthouses and four-storey town houses. The inclusion of a half-submerged parking facility, which is set below ground level but not completely underground, has created some unique opportunities for creativity on the lower storeys. There are homes where the living space on the ground floor is located higher up, ground-floor apartments with extra privacy and homes with a living space at a height of four metres and a view right over the harbour. By not only providing the building blocks with a main entrance but also giving the ground-level apartments their own front doors at street level, a lively and active street level has been created. In this project, social interaction is also enhanced by positioning the living spaces along the frontage facing the harbour and the inner courtyard, wherever possible.

The courtyard was designed by KCAP as a landscape and features extensive planting, with greenery literally extending from one wall to the other. A continuous dike has been used as a theme to create different spaces with a walking route and mature greenery. The informal inner garden invites residents to use it for a wide range of purposes. It is not a monofunctional ornamental garden but a green field that will lend itself to various uses. The intention is for the garden to be zoned, from more secluded areas providing privacy to shared, collective spaces. The northern section of the garden is the sunniest and a central meeting area has been created in this zone.
Zecc has designed 81 of the homes and was responsible for the technical implementation of the entire project. KCAP has designed 53 of the homes on the IJssel side, drew up the urban plan for Kade Noord and designed the central courtyard. Kade Noord has been realized by Heijmans Woningbouw Oost.
