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 one family houses and apartments. located close to the historical hart of Delft.
Starting points of the design were 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.
A 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 realize new qualities in public space, as well as new ecological zones.
