The ‘Fruitbuurt’ neighborhood in Utrecht is ready and in use. After two construction phases, each with different contractors and different construction techniques, the result is an absolutely wonder-ful neighborhood, a pleasure to walk and bike through. Taking its inspiration from the modest houses that previously inhabited the area, our design uses small scaled homes, intimate spaces and many carefully crafted details to honor that history. Along the Laan van Chartroise, however, the plan has been given a distinctively more urban allure. Old and new come together in manifold ways here. All the right reasons for some beautiful photos!
