Commission for 92 studios in the redevelopment area of Sphinx (a former industrial site) in Maastricht.
The residential building La Faenza, consisting of 92 studios of 45 m2, is an L-shaped volume around a central hall over four floors. The building aims in its architectural appearance to connect with the industrial history of the site and the preserved Brikken building: sturdy, honest and clear building structure and architecture. A hand-shaped brick was chosen, with much nuance in color and shape, which reinforces the sturdy character of the building.
The window openings, almost all in the same dimensions, form a mask, an intermedium between interior and exterior.
