BSH 4ALL

Invited competition for a housing block in Buiksloterham by Ymere. 

Successfully integrating a new "open" community into an existing "closed" neighbourhood relies on shared interests and healthy communal bonding in welcoming (and green!) common spaces. Accommodating "starters" and "statushouders" in a terraced housing complex brings together two target groups that are relatively new on the housing market, allowing them to share experiences and give back to the neighbourhood. An open community is built through a public square and commercial plinth that invite community members to engage in events and collaborate with their new neighbours.
