OMA - Rem Koolhaas, Inside Outside, West 8
 
location Breda
function housing
contributed by Maarten_Scheurwater

This courtyard housing block clad in wood veneer is placed on the Chassé campus, a former military base at the south of the city centre. The compact block sits on a pedestal containing parking garage and circulation is arranged by three staircases and elevator tracts which can be reached through the courtyard. The 10 storey high building contains over 144 rental and owner-occupied houses of different types. All the apartments have balconies, which have custom made sun shading elements made off expanded aluminum sheet, framed in aluminum profiles. West 8 designed the courtyard and Inside Outside developed the landscape. OMA was also the mastermind behind the urban plan of this successful campus concept.

Great concept, love this oma design. But the detailing frankly is verry badly done. Although this building is only a few years old, it looks worn down.
