Block with single-family dwellings and apartments
This block of single-family houses and apartments occupies a strip lying between the wide, dignified avenue of IJburglaan and the banks of the so-called Green Corridor. The avenue and the corridor both had a significant influence on the plan.
The block design also reflects the fact that the short western end of the block lies on an access road but the short eastern end adjoins a quiet plaza without through traffic. The character of IJburglaan called for a tall facade, so the single-family units on this side are four storeys high. The total building height exceeds the sum of that of the storeys, since the block rests on two partially submerged parking garages.
