contributed by Jose_Garcia

The Justus van Effen Quarter is the first modern example of a multi-level block that has gallery access to the upper level. It was designed by architect Michiel Brinkman (J.A. Brinkman's father) in 1918 under the commission of the Rotterdam City Housing Services. The block consists of both perimeter and central units that form two interior courtyards. The access to the dwellings is made from the semi-public courtyards. The first and second levels are accessible directly from the ground. Above, the quarter's most significant element, a gallery walkway over one kilometre long and varying from 2.3 to 3.3 metres wide. The quarter is made of concrete and brick. Details such as the composition of the windows and the built-in flower boxes of the gallery give the project a dynamic and energetic ambience. In 2010 -2011 the quarter was renovated extensively by Molenaar & Co architecten and HeblyTheunissen architecten.
