Residential Neighborhood, Emmen, Belgium


Residential Neighborhood, Emmen, Belgium


This study for Emmen, proposes a residential neighborhood with a variety of smaller, interlaced public gardens.
Every home has a front door on the ground floor and a slice of private garden property. This scheme doubles regular Dutch neighborhood density. ORG proposes a simple, effective, checkerboard plan order: the production of local identity is a task for the people that will appropriate the neighborhood – not for the architecture.
