Description

Text by Helena Casanova: The study area is divided into three main urban strips, separated by streets. The strips are placed perpendicularly to the canal on the north area. Each strip is made of two housing strips subdivided into 5 small blocks and one public space area in between. The public space strip in front of Kerklaan is in one hand flooded and on the other hand resents a longitudinal big plaza. The other two open spaces are covered with vegetation. The housing strips are shaped following a triangular section, thus creating a terraced inner facade towards the garden area. Each building integrates 11 apartments of different sizes. Parking is placed 100% underground.
