First stone for Aleida van Culemborg


Last week, the oldest resident of the previous residential building had the honour of laying the special foundation stone of the new apartment complex on Aleida van Culemborgstraat in Municipality of IJsselstein. Commissioned by Cazas Wonen, 34 new social housing units will be realised.

Kokon designed the three-room flats within the height and surface area of the previous houses, with one exception: the houses at the back will be deeper. The design incorporates an additional façade on the street side with openings to the galleries that will be hidden behind it and have a pleasant bridge with seating space at the front door.

In terms of sustainability measures, the BENG standard (Nearly Energy Neutral Building) has been adhered to. The homes will be gas-free and have solar panels. riz bouw started construction last March.
