Persoonshaven

HvdHA designed 26 social rental dwellings for the Rotterdam Feijenoord district. At Persoonshaven 12 three bedroom maisonettes will be built at ground floor level. The street corner will have a dwelling with an additional room at ground floor in an extension of the main block, allowing for a smooth connection to the adjoining housing. At the upper floors, 13 identical four bedroom maisonettes will be built.

The project will  be clad with brickwork in three different colours. Purple-red clinkers, set in tile bond, form a plinth and ressault-like motifs. The façades above will have alternating planes in bright-orange and beige bricks. All these will be applied in a random brick setting with minimal vertical joints. Curly steel railings and precast concrete copings, sills and gargoyles establish restrained ornaments.
