De Akkerranden

The expansion of the village Oudenhorn, near Hellevoetsluis, is being realized in the form of project De Akkerranden. Commissioned by BPD, Kokon has provided the urban design and architecture for the 180 homes at this location. The varied range will consist of: terraced, semi-detached and detached houses. The applied architectural style emerges from a study of the "regional" housing of Oudenhoorn. The buildings show a variety of masonry colors with contrasting roll layers above the window frames. The rich facade detailing and distinctive features; such as the plastered facades in block bond, the curved gables and the use of gable anchors are seen in the design. The environment and the neighboring district were therefore very important in the design process. Not only for the appearance of the houses, but for the atmosphere and the perception of the entire neighborhood. Squares, green streets and the Brink therefore play an important role. All homes have an EPC of -0.07, so the plan is well within the future environmental requirements.
