Renewed Strokenbouw

The project LommerRijk is situated in Kolenkitbuurt, a neighbourhood in the former district of Bos en Lommer. It is part of ‘Zuidelijk Veld’, a renewal zone between Erasmusgracht and Bos en Lommerweg, in which the existing urban fabric with its long strips forms the departure point.

Lommerrijk comprises six blocks containing both owner-occupied and rental dwellings. The two northern blocks have been designed by Korth Tielens Architecten, the other four are by Wingender Hovenier. Together, they form two elongated strips that enclose a communal inner garden with a public courtyard. The emphasis in the restructuring of this neighbourhood is on the transition between the building and the public space. Korth Tielens have designed this transitional zone as a social space, which is part both of the dwelling and the street. The spaces are marked by brick piers and plant containers and solid spandrel panels. Considerable attention has also been given to light and sight lines and the detailing of the reception spaces. The dwellings have private balconies on the street side and are accessed via a gallery on the inside of the block. The dwellings designed by Wingender Hovenier are situated above a half-sunken parking garage, which has resulted in a raised plinth. Here, stairs on the street side create a traditional relationship between the dwelling and the street. All of the blocks are executed in light brown brick and are characterized by a meticulous finish and concrete details. In the blocks by Korth Tielens, the composite balcony ceilings with variously sized circular cutaways lend a whimsical accent to the monumental brick architecture. (ARCAM)
