Seventeen terraced houses are part of a redevelopment scheme for the site of a former textile factory. The typology of the houses is based on a drive-in / split-level organisation. The individual garages are half sunken underground, giving the living room and the dining room a stepped section. Although the shape of the complex forms a strong urban ensemble, the individual houses are still expressed as a rhythm of roof sheds, that together with the metal cladding refers at the industrial past of the area.
Program: 17 drive-in houses
Support: Bureau Bouwkunde
