contributed by diederendirrix

Along with the urban development plan made in collaboration with Buro Lubbers, diederendirrix also developed the housing for a section phase of Strijp R. The ground-access dwellings vary in typology, size, layout and price but clearly form a whole. The sources of inspiration are clearly visible. The characteristic appearance of the new housing with its jutting concrete roof edges and canopies, alternating roof shapes, storey-high windows and exceptional angles and bay windows is a charming echo of the industrial past of Strijp R. The use of hedgerows as property boundaries is a deliberate choice as they naturally connect the private spaces with the surrounding areas. The colour scheme is also noteworthy. The subtle whites of the brickwork combined with the decisive white of the frames and soffit frameworks impart a relaxed feeling to the design. The colour of the front doors is a reference to the old blue of Philips.
