The apartmentblock for elderly is situates on the former location of a dairy-factory, at the banks of the Boarn. After research to the characteristics in the village Aldeboarn a quality-document is made. This forms the base of the plan for 20 apartments and 9 new residents. The quality of the dwelling, the garden and the public space are related to the existing village-structure. This way the project forms a direct relationship with the village.
The recognizable alleys of Aldeboarn we used to perforate the block on strategic spots. This way new paths to the village are made. Public walkways are extruded towards the plan and the banks of the Boarn. Also vegetation, lighting, benches and playgrounds are realized along the extrusion. Public green areas return on specific locations and form a connection with the private gardens. A search of the materials and details and colors in the village is used and mixed with steel and sinted brick, citing to the industrial history of the location. The former directors home with historic elements is restored and is part of the plan. The new block cedes from the main road in respect of the directors home.
