On the grounds of the his­tor­i­cal Droste fac­tory, 229 houses and apart­ments have been devel­oped into a cen­tre of mod­ern liv­ing and work­ing. Some build­ings of the old fac­tory have been refur­bished, and new build­ings have arisen. DKV‘s urban plan is based on urban den­sity and pub­lic spaces with a good park­ing solu­tion. The whole area is free of cars and all cars are parked out of sight. The nar­row streets that thus can be formed pro­vide a typ­i­cal ‘‘cozy’’ urban life.

Most homes are located on these streets. These res­i­dences have pri­vate liv­ing rooms on the first floor, pri­vacy that is extra enforced by the flex­i­ble screens that allow to see out but not in. The ground floor is open and allows an inter­ac­tive rela­tion­ship with the street. All archi­tects have worked with sim­i­lar types of brick to improve the cohe­sion between the build­ing blocks. Also the details and rhythm are care­fully devel­oped together. Since the façade of the build­ing blocks wraps around, all blocks have their own iden­tity and can be eas­ily recognized.
