The location for StudentLiving Domus lies in the middle of in the heart of the (old) Rotterdam along the ‘KennisAs’- and knows thanks to the strategic location a few advantages comparing to other spots in the city: the unique view over Rotterdam and river Maas, the excellent accessibility by public transportation and the urban amenities on walking distance. The developing of this promising location asks for a special building, strong enough to stand its important position between the two parts of the city and at the same time being meaningful for its surroundings and public space.
