START OF CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES BUITENGEWOON BAJONET
We celebrated the launch of our successfully sold-out Buitengewoon Bajonet project in Rotterdam in a playful way last week. At the start of the careful demolition, our project buyers were able to select their own recycled ornament, which will be incorporated within the façade of their new home.
Buitengewoon Bajonet is a demolition and renovation project in Rotterdam’s ‘oude Westen’. It’s right in the center of Rotterdam and within walking distance of Rotterdam CS, but it’s not yet a place many people would like to live with their family. The goal of this project is to attract exactly this new target group, by offering attractive, affordable family homes with garden, marketed with a lot of focus on individual buyers.
For FARO it was a foregone conclusion that our project’s architectural starting point should be the atmosphere of the demolished 19th-century buildings. A careful analysis forms the basis for the new façades, and a smart building box has been developed to enable buyers to compose their ideal home. The literal reuse of ornaments from the former buildings forms part of this careful reconstruction. These have been carefully removed, cleaned, renovated and given a new place in the new façades.
