Affordable houses for the Rotterdam Feijenoord district
At Persoonshaven a block with stacked maisonettes has been built. 12 three bedroom maisonettes sit at the ground floor level of Persoonshaven street. The street corner dwelling has 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 are built.
The project is clad with brickwork in three different colours. Purple-red clinkers, set in tile bond, form a plinth and ressault-like motifs. The façades above have alternating planes in bright-orange and beige bricks. All these are applied in a random brick setting with minimal vertical joints. Curly steel railings and precast concrete copings, sills and gargoyles establish restrained ornaments.
