An old indus­trial site in Oud-​Ijmuiden is being trans­formed into a dynamic neigh­bor­hood. Four archi­tects design each with their own style the houses of the mas­ter plan of Lies­beth Brink. The his­tor­i­cal sur­round­ings, the view, the locks, the fish­ing har­bor and the small scale were the inspi­ra­tion of this mas­ter plan. The plan has a clear street pat­tern that allows views of the water from the cen­tral spaces. In the cen­tre of the plan are low build­ings, higher build­ings are placed on the outer edge and small inti­mate streets and squares are formed. This also pro­vides a vari­ety of hous­ing types. Not only town houses but also apart­ments for rent or for sale. The plan also pro­vides space for entre­pre­neurs by adding small scale com­mer­cial spaces in com­bi­na­tion with hous­ing. This mix of liv­ing, work­ing and the his­tor­i­cal char­ac­ter of the neigh­bor­hood pro­vide a dynamic and inspir­ing environment.

FARO designed a vari­ety of hous­ing types, apart­ments and sin­gle fam­ily homes. The FARO build­ings can be rec­og­nized by wide hor­i­zon­tal cor­nices that accen­tu­ate the top of the build­ing. To pre­vent too much hor­i­zon­tal­ity in the facades, we play with tall win­dows of dif­fer­ing widths and frames around the win­dows that vary in height. This cre­ates a play­ful façade that still refers to the tra­di­tional town houses.
