FARO designed 76 houses for the Uitvindersbuurt in Ede. The houses vary from large and small apartments, large and small terraced houses, houses that adapt to life phase of the residents and a few special houses for special resident groups.
The central design theme for field C is the ‘‘yard’’. This yard actually is a modern playground for the elderly. This is where the houses are with bed and bathrooms on the ground floor so people can stay in their homes when they get older. The houses have doors that open up to small front gardens that border to the ‘yard’. This is a car free, quite interior area in the neighborhood.
The ‘yard’ is the central are in field C. The other houses lie on the outer rim of the field, along streets and the park. All houses are made of the same materials and in the same colors. The brick used is the same, but is applied in varying ways. A long horizontal canopy roof connects all houses. The low roof give the neighborhood a feeling of a garden city with a friendly face and many front yards. Most houses also have a back yard.
