A fan­tas­tic new area of Delft is being con­structed on and around the deep­ened rail tun­nel in Delft. It will form the con­nec­tion between the old inner city and the new sta­tion. This devel­op­ment has been appro­pri­ately named Nieuw Delft. There is space in Nieuw Delft for many dif­fer­ent ini­tia­tives includ­ing new liv­ing con­cepts for the grow­ing group of over 55s.

In var­i­ous projects FARO is seek­ing new hous­ing forms for assertive senior cit­i­zens; peo­ple who are look­ing to the future and pre­fer not to be depen­dent on an increas­ingly hands-​off gov­ern­ment. We’re well aware that the demands of this grow­ing group of senior cit­i­zens is extremely diverse. There isn’t 1 solu­tion; each sit­u­a­tion demands a new and cus­tomized approach.

Such a cus­tomized approach must be appro­pri­ate, but also needs to be flex­i­ble. After all, require­ments are chang­ing by def­i­n­i­tion. At the start many peo­ple are mainly search­ing for a nice apart­ment in a beau­ti­ful new place; back to the city cen­ter or for exam­ple close to a loca­tion for a time-​consuming hobby. But they want to be able to stay liv­ing there when old age really sets in and they, per­haps, can’t man­age as well as they used to.

The beauty of ini­tia­tives such as Nieuw Delft is that it gives peo­ple the oppor­tu­nity to take mat­ters into their own hands. You don’t need to set­tle for a stan­dard apart­ment; you have the oppor­tu­nity to decide every­thing for your­self. How­ever, you don’t do this on your own, but together with a group of like-​minded peo­ple, so that you can help each other if needed.

We have put together a spe­cial mag­a­zine of applic­a­ble ref­er­ence projects that give an impres­sion of how FARO approaches these kinds of assign­ments, and that hope­fully will offer inspi­ra­tion for groups want­ing to get started in Nieuw Delft.
