Groningen 5


The competition is a proposal for a small scale housing project in the city of Groningen. Each individual dwelling is readable as a separate entity, as well as part of a whole. The structure is simple and rational for optimizing the relationship between value and cost. The project is characterized by creating a hierarchy of outside spaces which is clearly defined public and private areas, utilizing storage shelters and fences, resulting in a rich spatial environment still easy to orientate yourself within. The units have generous private outside living rooms, on the ground for some units, on the roof for some, closely connected to the main inner room with removable folding doors.

Each unit creates living qualities with dense solutions, flexible floor plans, parking underneath the buildings and an optimized relationship between inside and outside.
