The Noordzeestraat is the main entrance of the harbour district. Here you will find the Lucy GLXY nestling on top of the roof of the former machine factory Eysink (now the studio of the SpaceCowboys). The glossy, padded skin of this Lucy conceals a luxury residence unit. It’s a spacious venue which is suitable for one-night but also for longer stays. It has its own entrance at the corner of the building, through which you will enter the heart of the Lucy GLXY where the pantry and the sanitation are located. The bedroom, with a royal bed facing the east, offers a great view on the harbor. On the western side of the residence, there is a small lounging area from which you can see the sun setting above the magnificent river IJssel landscape.
Construction process
The Lucy GLXY has been build on a steel construction platform, where wooden ribs were bolted to the steel floor. It is in many ways like building a ships body, but instead on building it from the keel it has been build from a floor. For strength the ribs have been connected to each other with timber and for making the walls, blocks of high density isolation has been used and later this has been shaped by hand into form. (see pictures). After the process of shaping the outer surface has been smoothened with a thin layer of plaster and after a period of drying the surface has been prepared with epoxy for the finishing with hotspray. The hotspray coating is the outer layer, which later on has been coloured with 2K coating in RAL 7038 grey.


Interior design
Inside the finishing IS done with epoxy coating and the area where the toilet, washing and shower will be will be coloured in a brightly yellow / orange. So in fact the whole of the living space acts like a sculpture made of artificial fabric. A royal bed is near the rear window with a view to the rising sun in the east (harbour side). At the front (west side) is a small balcony from where you have a great view at the river in the setting sun. The royal bed is covered by a unique bedspread designed by Annemiek Pruyt. Interior colours are vivid to make a contrast with the marine grey on the outside.
