contributed by Ursem_Bouwgroep

This student housing complex was designed for the DUWO Foundation. For a fast building process, a modular construction system was used. Each building is six storeys tall and is designed without an apparent front or rear. Three facades are finished in dark masonry laid with ‘beards’ of overflowing, excess mortar, their irregular texture resulting in a distinctive play of shadows on the facade. Deeply recessed window openings framed in aluminium are scattered in a playful pattern over the facades. Facing the park, the three buildings feature a green facade of composite panels combined with a tubular metal frame covered in climbing plants. Students can occupy the units alone or share with one other person. Three rooms are grouped around a shared living room with kitchen. Facilities such as the entrance, bicycle parking and garbage room are situated on the ground floor of each building.
