Semi-permanent village

The westernmost garden village is compact and symmetrically organized around Zonneplein where the community centre ‘Het Zonnehuis’ occupies a central position. Bridge-like buildings span the side streets of the main axes. This village was originally intended to be semi-permanent and was designed for families from the inner-city slums.
