TExt by Helena Casanova: The plan is structured on urban scale by 6 'dancing' strips of row houses situated perpendicularly to the Fluiterlaan. At the end of each strip and facing Fluiterlaan, some bigger volumes close the intervention. All volumes present an irregular pitched-roof shape. The developed typologies consist of traditional row houses on one hand, and of packages of one ground-floor house with one three-level houses on top on the other. Some houses have a carport on ground floor, in front or besides the houses. It is not clear where other typologies provide parking solutions.
