In the newly built neighbourhood Passageraren, Iggy stands out - a punky building with a rusty red tone and spectacular views. Compact one-bedroom apartments with luxurious balconies coexist with penthouses with terraces, two-storey apartments with striking ceiling heights and three-bedroom apartments. The variety creates interesting dynamics in the building and eventually for the neighbourhood.
Iggy is a celebration of benefits of walking for the climate, the cityscape and personal health. Like Ohboy, it's a pilot project exploring ways to reduce car use in the city. Cycling, walking and public transport solutions are shared by residents and passers-by are offered rain shelters and drinking fountains. The outdoor environment is lively and green, for the pedestrian-friendly city.
