FREEDOM WITHIN FIXED URBAN BORDERS
A pro-active urban regeneration strategy. An unsolicited and collaborative approach. With the goal to densify within our existing urban borders. How to develop a mono-functional area into a multifunctional, multi-layered and diverse piece of city.
Many large scale (post-war) housing developments have resulted in mono-functional neighbourhoods. Red fields full of ,often, outdated houses: up for renewal, renovation or demolition. What is the most sustainable approach?
In all our housing projects there is a big emphasis on typological development. How do we live; together in communities? About the influence of constantly expanding and densifying urban areas on the design of our homes.
Our architecture connects with the street and opens-up towards the city. Simultaneously there is flexibility and privacy for the users. Read all about our plinth strategies in this ‘VMX Explained’.
FAMILIES IN THE CITY
Our work addresses a highly relevant topic for cities and its governments: How can we respond to the growing need of housing for families in the city? An approach to enrich and diversify the variety of the (newly built) housing stock.
