Kop van K Oostenburg


Seen from the Oostenburgervaart the two buildings on lot G and H form the beginning of a row of contrasting building blocks along the Isaac Titsinghkade.

Even though the blocks on lot G and H are built using the same construction method, in appearance, the emphasis on diversity of this new neighbourhood is clearly felt within the different facade materials and window openings. 

Both blocks are built up out of circular products and smart demountable systems. The supporting structure of the plinth of both blocks consists of demountable prefab concrete elements and form the basis on which the wooden modules are stacked. Block G is finished with bricks from recycled raw material and the facade of block H consists of thermally modified wooden elements.

A centrally placed courtyard brings in daylight and fresh air to all apartments that are placed around it


Profile picture

By developing block G and block H simultaneously, space is created for smart solutions that benefit both blocks. For example, in the heart of block G there is a large courtyard that directly connects to block H. This can be reached at the front and rear via a generous covered passage and provides fresh air, light and visual connections.
