Inner city redevelopment in Rotterdam

At the Hudsonstraat in Rotterdam, the task is to redevelop two empty plots, making use of city blocks that refer to the existing morphology. The district of ‘Bospolder Tussendijken’ has its origins at the start of the twentieth century. Nowadays, the area has a very diverse population. The basis consists of ‘classic’ enclosed city blocks of 4 to 5 layers high, with mostly chamfered corners.

The new building masses act as a modern translation. The programme consists of 132 housing units and is meant to complement the profile of the existing population, and is made up of terraced houses and apartments in the middle and higher market segments. In the enclosed spaces, parking garages are hidden underneath common semi-public gardens.
