About This Project

In Middelburg we positioned inside-out-turned city blocks in the surrounded landscape and perifere positioned small scale individual housing. The idea of organizing large amount of houses of various typology around courtyards helped melting them together in the larger community of the residential area.
Most of the houses have a panoramic view over the water and towards the city center. Characteristic are the horizontal window panes and the use of the local colors red, black and white, used in farmhouses and barns in the area.
