On a location, slated for 12 residences, where high-rise seemed the only option, we designed something unexpected.

Using round shapes and internal gardens, the amount of area these homes occupy is limited, a positive aspect in this restricted space. It allows for close placement without compromising privacy. The circular design provides the flexibility to position each home at a unique angle on the plot.

Two types of residences

Despite the compact plot with 12 residences, there is still ample shared green space. Even a pond has been integrated into this park design. Thus, all homes possess beautiful views to the exterior.

The plan consists of two types of homes: single story residences and homes with an additional structure up top. The single-story homes are ideal for senior or individuals content with one bedroom. The other homes offer an extra bedroom and an expanded living space on the ground floor.

B-too has developed a concept for affordable social living, in Almere, where high-rise seemed to be the only solution. The study demonstrates that this style of living provides a viable social solution, allowing bot seniors and young professionals to reside in familiar surroundings.
