97 apartments renovation, roermond
1998-2002

A new, physical safe situation is created by intervention and paying attention to several points. First of all, the acces to the court is no longer accessible to the public, but privileged to the habitants of the apartments. Originally the courtyard was planned with trees, yet not performable due to the construction of a car park underneath of it. However, to preserve this greenery, staircases covered with ivy are designed to replace the trees. Secondly, the forecourt is renovated, privileging the pedestrians. The existing entrance is now enlarged with a new hall and covers the functions of both entering, meeting and waiting for transportation.
