Leo Heijdenrijk: "I was asked to design something at a place called the Autumn square. Autumn. What reminds you of autumn? I searched for associations with this specific season. Autumn is part of the cycle of spring, summer, autumn, winter. I wanted to manifest that melancholy of autumn in my design, but not without the subsequent revival of nature; the flowering during the spring season. So I came to the ruin-like fašades made of antique baked bricks, to emphasise age, weathering and the past. At the rear side appear modern, bright apartments of prefabricated elements, to express the new. Most power is in the side walls, where the two contrasts are mended together."
