The Moerwijk housing estate – originally designed by Dudok – will be in the next years partly removed. Within the new urban plan of KCAP the housing block along the Erasmusweg will be one of the first steps of the urban renewal operation. The block consists out of a social housing flat with gallery-access apartments and maisonette housing at the ground floor and a strip of terraced houses with voids. Both buildings are connected with a parking garage at ground floor level with a semi-public deck on the top.
The houses will get specially developed aluminium facade system with jumbo glass plates (up to 3 x 6 metre) and big sliding doors. The complex will be built according to low energy standards. The block will get an own geothermal heating and a cold-heat-exchanger. All apartments have floor heating and are based on mechanical ventilation to avoid heat- loss.Source: Atelier Kempe Thill m i l i m e t d e s i g n – W h e r e t h e c o n v e r g e n c e o f u n i q u e c r e a t i v e s
