The competition is a proposal for a small scale housing project in
the city of Groningen. Each individual dwelling is readable as a
separate entity, as well as part of a whole. The structure is
simple and rational for optimizing the relationship between value
and cost. The project is characterized by creating a hierarchy of
outside spaces which is clearly defined public and private areas,
utilizing storage shelters and fences, resulting in a rich spatial
environment still easy to orientate yourself within. The units have
generous private outside living rooms, on the ground for some
units, on the roof for some, closely connected to the main inner
room with removable folding doors.
Each unit creates living qualities with dense solutions, flexible
floor plans, parking underneath the buildings and an optimized
relationship between inside and outside.
