‘Buitenge­woon Bajonet’ is in ‘Oude Westen’, a 19th-​century area in Rot­ter­dam. The dis­trict has been chang­ing for decades. Every­thing looks very dif­fer­ent fol­low­ing the 1980s and 1990s urban renewal. With this hous­ing block, FARO is refer­ring to the orig­i­nal archi­tec­ture of the area: that of the 19th Cen­tury. This includes a more beau­ti­ful and richer detail­ing, increased dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion in type and image, more beau­ti­ful mate­ri­als, urban and lively.

Dif­fer­ent types of bricks and vary­ing white accents in the façades ensure that each home is indi­vid­u­ally rec­og­niz­able, while nat­ural stone cladding and partly white stucco fea­tures accen­tu­ate the façades in a con­tem­po­rary way. The cor­ners of the hous­ing block are also dif­fer­en­ti­ated by bay windows.

All homes have access from the street and have a gar­den on the roof of the car park. There are 8 dif­fer­ent main types of home with many options for add-​ons. Res­i­dents can also con­sult with the archi­tect and con­trac­tor to deter­mine the design themselves.
