The brief from the developer ‘Groenstad’ was to design a collective housing project, which would achieve high density without compromising the privacy and amenity of its residents. The roofs of the three rows of houses step down following the lie of the land and maximise solar gain to the living areas and gardens. Two private east-west alley ways give access to the underground car park, allow each of the 8 units to have their own front door and access to their external amenity spaces. The work was realised in cooperation with architect Dirk De Meyer.
