On the former sports field of the Limburgia football club, the urban development plan with 78 dwellings demanded a diversity of dwellings. The housing typologies in our plan consist of 23 houses social rent terraced house for two-person and for ‘growth’. In the plan area there are also courtyard houses for free market and terraced houses for social rent, designed bij other architects.
The interpretation of the masterplan is done by 3 architects. The concept behind the elaboration of the plan was to generate a residential area, whereby the transitions between the different plans of the different architects do not manifest themselves. In order to guarantee this coherence, the three architects made joint proposals for the houses and the public layout with regard to the use of materials, color and details. In the materialization, local materials were chosen, namely brick, possibly painted, and roof tiles, in order to also connect to the surrounding residential area.
