At Lakerlopen’s edge was a left-over space which successive urban development plans of the city had proposed as a suitable site for two large, autonomous blocks that differ from the adjoining garden village by their position and shape. Both are positioned at a right angle to the rectangular layout of the garden village. One of them points its long façade more or less to the Tongerlesestraat, the other to the Paulus Potterstraat. Together these streets delineate the garden village on this side. Each of the two blocks contains 23 apartments. The massiveness of both volumes, evoked by their brick cladding, conceals the fact that they are essentially gallery-access flats. The galleries are hidden from view by the brick façade with a different composition for each floor and aluminiumframed openings. The integrated sun blinds, and the balconies that appear to stick out of the brick façades, enhance the buildings’ sturdy character.
