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.

Hol­lands Glo­rie refers to the Dutch tra­di­tion in archi­tec­ture. It uses col­ors that are of all times: red roofs and bricks, accents in wood painted red and white frames. The plan doesn’t copy the past with­out thought, but builds on it to cre­ate a Dutch plan for the future. A Dutch plan also has a cer­tain head-​strongness. Large white dorm­ers that con­trast with the red roofs and blue skies give the plan a cer­tain piz­zazz. Every house is iden­ti­fi­able by its dormer.

The apart­ments are built as a lit­tle vil­lage in itself. Not as a big block, but as a build­ing with a strong sil­hou­ette of gables, a ref­er­ence to the wharfs of Marken. This way, the apart­ment build­ing fol­lows the scale of the rest of the houses.
