The masterplan is created by defining three guiding themes. First, we wish to displace the subdivision. First and foremost, we want to create a neighborhood where it is good to live, a pleasant environment that encourages meeting and social interaction. A diverse neighborhood with streets and alleys, small squares, parks and gardens embedded in the landscape. Identity guides the development of the plans, working with elements that respond to a collective, cognitive memory. We propose some "village attributes": low and high garden walls, fences or gable benches but also natural elements such as a sheared hedge, a characteristic tree, a mowed path and an old moat....
Furthermore, we recognize the qualities already present on the site and start from what is already available: the vegetation present, the topography, the openness and the wide perspective. This is not a plea for a reconstruction of the historic landscape. It is, however, a call to deliberately combine the existing qualities and traces with new elements, adding a new layer of meaning to the existing palimpsest of the site. So doing, the landscape shapes the buildings.
Finally, we consider the buildings as an architectural family. The houses are very different from one another, yet they are always related, the buildings form an architectural family, each with its own character. The terraced house as a compact, economical and space-saving form of housing is used as the basis for the different types. This typology makes it possible to give full scope to qualitative outdoor space to which the houses always relate in a well-considered way. We interpret the dwellings as a flexible arrangement of different rooms, each with its own identity, scale, proportion and orientation. By means of transverse views, split levels and voids, the rooms are related to each other but also to the varied outdoor space.
Around the central landscape park that develops around a lower central axis in the fold of the landscape, a diverse neighborhood emerges. From their respective locations, the homes overlook the park that seeps into the surrounding neighborhoods from the center. The wild character of the existing vegetation along the edges is preserved and helps define the character of the park. The neighborhood consists of four neighborhoods with their own atmosphere. The first district refers to living in the yard. This consists of groups of houses arranged around a common yard. In addition, one of the neighborhoods focuses on living by the park. Here the houses are placed according to the contour lines of the pronounced topography, along the green fold in the landscape. The third residential district nestles adjacent to the existing subdivision and encloses a special courtyard garden with shared status. Finally, the two multi-family houses are placed in the landscape like pavilions and form the fourth district.
