SWANLA, HOUSES, ZEVENHUIZEN

 

Houses on the edgeThe planning area Swanla in the town of Zevenhuizen-Moerkapelle is a strip of two hectares adjacent to the open landscape. The width of the strip is determined by two slots arising from the division of the surrounding fields.It was decided to divide the land into two blocks which are loose in the open like islands. To enhance this island concept, the houses form a continuous front line. This is continued in the garden walls as a band, forming the boundary between private and public space.The entrance of the new district is marked by the upper part of the ‘island’ where the apartments are included. Because of the height and location, the apartments have a functional and spatial relationship with the opposite, higher buildings care center. The draft does not contain traditional streets. The sidewalks are wide, parking is resolved on its own plot. For terraced houses and apartments, there is an underground car park.The starting point for the new district was a combination of various property categories: row apartments, row houses for rent, two-under-one-roof apartments and stacked owner-occupied and rental housing. This diverse mix is held together by the roof, which folds over the entire plan. The skin of ceramic tiles, which becomes of gabled facade in right, giving the project the small scale that suits homes on the outskirts of Zevenhuizen.
