A sustainable living environment
The current Cluster 7 consists largely of (vacant) stores on the first floor with a large parking deck above. The current parking deck will disappear and make way for housing and large green inner gardens. The construction of the current parking deck will be reused and the new and current residents will soon be able to meet each other in the inner gardens, read a book, and enjoy a place where plenty of greenery is growing.
In the new blocks around these courtyard gardens, quality of life and living comfort is central. The courtyard gardens will have a wide wooden residential gallery which will be directly connected to the courtyard gardens by external stairs. This creates a simple and fast connection between the houses and the inner gardens. In addition, within the project, much attention is paid to the human scale and a mix of housing types is made to suit different target groups. The building blocks are characterized by an urban and sturdy low-rise and a light high-rise. With this typology, the design fits in with the other new developments in the area.
