BIES­LAND, YPENBURG

FARO devel­oped together with Heren5 the win­ning plan ‘‘Bies­land’’, that now, ten years later is com­pleted. In Bies­land, all archi­tects worked accord­ing to the agree­ments in the design guide­lines and the plan was devel­oped by a sin­gle devel­oper. This resulted in a har­monic bal­ance between unity and diversity.

PER­MA­NENT VACA­TION IN THE BIRCH WOOD , ZUIDLAREN

These dwellings have been designed and built in 1995 on a prac­ti­cally empty site. Since then time has done its work, it is now an attrac­tive birch grove in which can be lived. This grove is car-​free, shared and open to the pub­lic. The plan con­sists of twelve cubes with 30 social rental dwellings and 21 owner-​occupied dwellings that are seem­ingly loosely placed in between the trees. How­ever, the place­ment of the cubes is very exactly spec­i­fied so that all houses have a good amount of sun­shine and long sight lines. Every­day Utopia.

THATCHED ROOFS, HOOGEVEEN

Two old high rises were torn down and were to be replaced with sin­gle fam­ily homes. These 30 houses are real­ized in a park-​like set­ting around a lit­tle har­bor. FARO designed four semi-​detached houses, 13 ter­raced houses on the water and 13 ter­raced houses on the park. A wooden board­walk runs along the full width of the houses on the water side.

LIV­ING WITH WATER, ROTTERDAM

In coop­er­a­tion with BLAUW Archi­tecten - Design­ing these houses started with pic­tur­ing the new res­i­dents. Who comes to live in Nes­se­lande, chooses a rural envi­ron­ment, rel­a­tively close to the city, with plenty of space and a lot of water. The prox­im­ity to the water was a qual­ity we wanted to devel­oped as much as pos­si­ble. Another rea­son peo­ple want to move here is the peace and quiet.

LIFT TAKES SENIOR CIT­I­ZENSCARS TO THE NEXT LEVEL, TWELLO

A super­mar­ket and sev­eral homes have been replaced and com­bined into one build­ing on the edge of the vil­lage cen­ter, beside the Twellose Beek. This has cre­ated one large build­ing between the vil­lage cen­ter and green­ery, a build­ing that is in keep­ing with the envi­ron­ment and cre­ates a lot of open space.

SMALL TOWN LIV­ING, VIJFHUIZEN

The catch­word for Vijfhuizen, a VINEX-​location with Lies­beth van der Pol as urban archi­tect, was ‘mod­ern towns’. The key-​points for this design were: small-​scale, indi­vid­u­al­ity, sep­a­rate ele­ments, social dif­fer­en­ti­a­tion, bor­der­ing com­mon ground, off-​street park­ing and archi­tec­tural cohe­sion. The result was a strong con­cept of ‘steep eaves and dra­matic dormers’.

ENERGY NEU­TRAL IN GEER­PARK, VLIJMEN

VLIJ018 intro

Geer­park is a new neigh­bor­hood in Vli­j­men. The city, the cor­po­ra­tion, the province and the water­dis­trict have for­mu­lated high sus­tain­able ambi­tions to make Geer­park the most sus­tain­able neigh­bor­hood in the Nether­lands. The neigh­bor­hood will be all-​electric and all homes will be energy neu­tral. The plan belongs to one of the 13 ‘excel­lent area’s’ des­ig­nated by the ministry.

TWUYVER­HOEK, SINT PANCRAS

A rural char­ac­ter, space for spe­cific tar­get groups like young and old peo­ple and empha­sis on sus­tain­able build­ing. These are some points of depar­ture that form the basis for the devel­op­ment of Twuyver­hoek. The basis of the plan was cre­ated in 2004, when FARO together with Heren 5, van der Waals Zein­stra, SVP and Min2 were ‘locked up’ by the city of Langedijk in a hotel in the dunes to cre­ate an inte­gral plan. The whole town was a wit­ness – city ser­vices, town coun­cil, cul­tural his­to­ri­ans and a com­mit­tee from the residents.

THE OLD VIL­LAGE WAS ALSO MIXED, BLARICUM

The plan­ning pro­posal is to make a ‘mini neigh­bour­hood’ within the larger Blar­icum sec­tor plan B. The qual­ity man­ual also ensures large-​scale cohe­sion. The mini-​neighborhood com­prises a mix of 5 home types with a total of 23 homes.

PEO­PLE BUILD THEIR OWN HOUSE, NIEUWKOOP

The ‘Mei­jepark’ and the ‘Zuid­hoek’ are both part of the small-​scale land­scape sur­round­ing the lakes around Nieuwkoop. A sig­nif­i­cant effort is made to con­nect the new plan with the beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings.
This is expressed in the use of local trees and plants and cre­at­ing views through the plan to the sur­round­ing area. With the design of the lots is sought to cre­ate an infor­mal envi­ron­ment that is con­sis­tent with the atmos­phere in ‘Zuidhoek’.

BRASSER­HOUT, YPENBURG

The mas­ter plan for the Vinex dis­trict of Ypen­burg near The Hague included one of the twelve sub-​areas with the theme rural­ity. FARO has trans­lated this into a num­ber of ‘coun­try houses’ with mansard roofs. This ‘mansard coun­try house type’ FARO came up with, can accom­mo­date a lot of dif­fer­ent dwellings; large or small, con­tain­ing one or two dwellings, sev­eral apart­ments, eight ter­raced houses or a ‘clus­ter house’.

HOOGWOUD

FARO won together with Zee­man Vast­goed the com­pe­ti­tion to design Hoog­woud Oost, the sec­ond phase. We sub­mit­ted a cur­rent, typ­i­cal Dutch plan that we named ‘Hol­lands Glo­rie’ (Dutch Splen­dor). Inspired by the Dutch tra­di­tion of rural vil­lages and fit­ting with the typ­i­cal Dutch vil­lage of Hoog­woud. The plan has a vari­ety of hous­ing types: town houses with char­ac­ter­is­tic cor­ners, semi-​detached homes and apart­ments for sale and for rent.
