The buildings lie carefully arranged in a wadi-like landscape. By splitting the volume in three separate buildings, nearly all apartments receive direct sunlight. Generous balconies that lie halfway embedded in the building further connect life inside to the surrounding environment. The various apartment-types are flexible, which means for example that when residents require home-care, their apartment can easily be adapted accordingly. Though separated, the three buildings form a coherent whole by sharing dynamic facades and robust masonry.
Tie onto the surrounding
Informal trails between the buildings and through the wadi lead up to the old road that runs along the adjacent cloister-building and the station. Hereby, the plan integrates with- and adds to the existing network of neighbourhood bike- and footpaths.
