Lakerlopen is one of the neighbourhoods in Eindhoven which were designed at the beginning of the twentieth century as garden villages, albeit without much green, in this case. Apart from the reconstructed central court, the neighbourhood has been torn down and replaced with a new development. The structural quality of the old houses was such that normal renovation would not have sufficed. In order to preserve the village-like character of this working-class neighbourhood, the layout of the streets was kept the same and several squares were introduced, interrupting the straight streets as a contemporary variation on the original inner courts that had gateway buildings as entrances. Variation has been further enhanced by using different fa├žade heights, a welcome feature made possible by the variety of housing types across the neighbourhood. In its new form, Lakerlopen has remained the village it once was; its green roofs, however, make it more like a garden village than ever before.
