Flexible housing for a new phase of life
A sense of community : A project in which the residents can embrace an active lifestyle and
maintain independence as long as possible. This is supported by a close knit community,
brought together in a unique building.
Accessibility: A project that connects with its context both visually as well as having simple
access routes for motorists, cyclists and pedestrians. A well designed parking strategy that
maximises the availability of green areas on the site.
Adaptability: Apartments that allow “aging in place” are fully accessible for the disabled
and easily adaptable to changing personal circumstances. The simple units also allow flexible
usage of different parts of the building.
Inside/outside: A solution that allows access to green spaces, from private south facing
balconies to common external terraces to a shared garden and access to surrounding
Public/private: A building with a distinctly private and a public side with an exciting central
shared space with a welcoming interior, encouraging social interaction.
Lifetime skills development: A building that offers the residents space to work
on their hobbies and wellness; painting, woodwork, courses, exercise etc.
