Clusters

Design of housing- and mixed use units for Tilburg, the Netherlands.

In this competition we worked towards developing a model for a programmatically mixed community, in which the smallest spatial units could be combined over time to accommodate for shifts in social needs in terms of interconnection and spatial layout. The housing units were designed with a “soft” edge, where the structure could be rebuilt to create connections between the units to alter the sizes and configurations of the accommodation. We imagine the housing units to be used by single people, single parents, families, people who work from home etc. The housing units are arranged in “clusters”, with private courtyards at the centre and public access around the perimeter.
