They are building right now!
With the re-location of the care centre Wendhorst, a new neighbourhood, de Heerderhof, could be created. Urbis developed the plans together with VanWonen and a board of local residents. It consists in 12 new care homes for 8 residents each. In addition 50-55 houses were planned, in a great variety of types and prices; smaller houses, detached and semi-detached, as well as rental housing. This creates a living environment for different target groups and generations, which makes this neighbourhood life-cycle proof.
Typically for this neighbourhood is the 2 mtr altitude difference. We used it to create a hilly outdoor landscape design.
By putting the pet garden and the vegetable garden in the middle of this neighbourhood, we created a space where people can meet, which is a great asset in this living environment.
