Description

The aim is to create a housing area that should feel urban while retaining the qualities of the Frisian village. The main challenge is to combine rural typology with urban density. The Boksumerdyk will form the backbone of the master plan. Two larger water areas spread out on both sides of the site. Large round jetties are created in the water areas. The housing typologies are intended to create space for interaction: hence the housing is cut into smaller units so that water and the street can infiltrate in the plot.

Jury assessment

A clear-cut structure that logically ensues from the scale of the housing, the design of which is well elaborated. The jury would have liked to see more variety. A gradual development is not readily conceivable.
