location Amersfoort
function housing, urban plan
contributed by dirkverwoerd

On the 33 living / working accommodation units 11 are detached, the other 22 units are semi-detached. Five narrow streets, covered over by the residential dwellings, run from a picturesque and centrally located square with lime trees and benches at right angels between the houses. Perforations in the roof allows natural light to reach the small gardens. All dwellings have a basement with sun lounge, a spacious study and a storage room. The entrance and the kitchen are situated on the first floor. From there a small staircase led to a spacious living room measuring 70 m2. The gable roof created a striking dip in the living room. Blom had initially designed the roof with skylights, an idea that wasn't implemented due to the costs. Three small bedrooms and a bathroom are situated on the top and the fourth story.
