happy in Lunetten
Housing association Portaal asked us to research the potential for redeveloping their location on the Brennerbaan, taking into account possible future developments in and around the district Lunetten. For this we use the method “creating and maintaining value”, developed by architecten van Mourik. With this, values, interests and potential can be made insightful and negotiable.
The initial research focuses on the whole district on an urban level, followed by a vision for the location itself. The result is an enclosed residential volume on top of a plinth with an extremely flexible structure, which is optimally oriented towards the sun. Residences can be accessed through the courtyard to stimulate the development of a community. Using solar panels as sound screens elsewhere creates space to activate rooftops with a green programme, varying from meeting spaces and urban farming to games and sports.
