This new project containing 28 housing units is located between Trapstraat/Berthoutstraat and Mechelsebaan in Duffel. The design aims to maintain the green character of the neighborhood to a maximum. To do so, a semi-urban density is created while maintaining private gardens and public spaces. Various locally relevant housing typologies are used through which the design creates a dialogue and interaction in the existing urban tissuu. The various typologies are brought together within compact volumes so the spatial structure remains clearly readable, and energy loss is limited. Solar panels and green roofs are also integrated into the design. The living areas on the ground floors are oriented to the gardens and frontgardens. The bedrooms are situated on the first floor and occasionally under the roof. The shifting of various typologies gives the neighborhood an alternating profile as defining quality of the streetscape and connects the neighborhood with the surrounding development. The planological organization and the orientation of the units are in relation to the depth of the allotments. Both the privacy between the new building volumes and the existing construction as well as the privacy within the new volumes themselves is maintained by keeping a certain distance, by avoiding interfering views and by inserting architectural green elements such as hedges and local trees. In this way the design tries to integrate social housing and to connect it with the surroundings.
