In the style of the garden city, this former industrial plot of 5 ha has been redeveloped into a high quality mixed residential area with 200 single family houses and apartments. The transformed area is located close to the historical heart of Delft.
Starting point of the design was to create ground based houses at relatively high density (40 dwellings/ acre). The design enhances the spatial and historic context to create an attractive neighborhood with high living quality. The built parking solutions were required to keep the heart of the area car free.
Canals were added to meet the requirements for extra water surface. The channel system mitigates the flooding risk due to heavy rains. This presented the opportunity to introduce new qualities in public space, as well as new ecological zones.
