In an urban setting designed by the Architecten Cie, a number of small
urban villas are situated in a fully car-free landscape. The design
is made for three of those urban villas. The layout was fixed in both
size and height.|
The apartments are situated around a central entrance hall which is
provided with daylight by a glazed roof. The entrance stairs circle
around the elevator, separating the entrance hall in two autonomous
halls. Because of its specific construction, bearing facade and bearing
shaft, the size, number and place of the apartments may vary on each
The facade therefore has been kept as a neutral concrete grid. Heating
devices are hidden under the window seal in order to keep the walls
free and make any floor plan possible.
The grid is continued on the roof, as the roof is clearly visible
from the neighbouring buildings.
