A variety of housing types in a healthy, nature-inclusive environment
The name WERF&CO wasn’t chosen at random. WERF (wharf) is a direct reference to the area’s industrial history, and &CO refers to the development’s ambition to create a genuine sense of community among its residents with the help of a communal courtyard garden, the Maas window and shared roofs, which will include a vegetable garden and a rooftop greenhouse. WERF&CO will offer a variety of housing types with spacious private outdoor areas in a healthy and inclusive environment. Among the elements supporting these provisions will be multifunctional roofs designed to accommodate energy generation, the capture and channelling of rainwater, and organic farming/vegetable gardens, and to serve as venues for socialising and relaxing. Meanwhile, facades promise to boast biodiversity-enhancing vegetation. In short, WERF&CO is destined not only to be a stylish place of rugged manmade and natural beauty, but also a healthy one for both people and wildlife. Ideal for urban dwellers who appreciate the raw character of this unique part of Rotterdam.
