Text by Joost Glissenaar: Parallel to the van Harinxmakanaal a wide new canal is created. Around this canal a series of housing typologies is arranged. In the design of all the typologies water is a key element. The five proposed typologies establish as many different relations with water. The project provides all single family housing with the same simple facility: a privileged relation to the water. The apartment blocks create different relations with the water: the ring block in the west hosts a harbour; the block in the middle a square which can be flooded and he small apartment block in the east presents a platform facing the canal.
