"Residential tower 'De Faar', site 'De Nieuwe Dokken' in Ghent. Views on the towers of Ghent, the docks and with south-facing terraces, that is De Faar by Beel. On top, this building with bright red ceramic facade cladding by STONE is a new landmark in the Ghent skyline: the trees on its roof are like a waving plume a beacon for everyone looking from the town to De Nieuwe Dokken.
A new way of life in Ghent
There is no place in Ghent where you live near such a large water feature. The docks are no less than 110 meters wide at De Faar by Beel. From your apartment, you not only look over the old harbor, you can also step onto the Schipperskaai (a new pedestrian quay along the water) or cycle over the Batavia Bridge into the center.
In conversation with Stéphane Beel; A home for people
""The architecture is intended to allow people to appropriate this building, this neighborhood. It is part of the district, the city.
Afterwards you get the compliment: ""I can unwind in my house, I come home.""
