Houses Inarihof delivered
16.07.2009

The Inarihof in the Waterrijk quarter in Woerden, is delivered last week. In this block, with a total of 53 dwellings, JSA designed and supervised during construction 22 houses. Mix Architectuur designed the other houses. The urban plan for Waterrijk is designed by West 8, with a total of 900 dwellings on four islands, referring to the historic ‘Holland watertown’.

The Inarihof plan, located on the northernmost island, is characterised by a closed building block made up of individual houses around a communal outside space with ground-level parking provided half under the houses and half under a deck on the individual properties. This means that all the living areas have been moved to the first floor and provided with a large terrace, from which stairs provide access to the elevated central space at the rear of the house.

The houses are alternately designed by JSA and Mix Architectuur creating a high degree of diversity in the facades of the block. No long-range of equal housing, but differently designed houses next to each other. The inside of the block is uniformly shaped. Here are all the facades are constructed in the same light brickwork which gives the collective interior an almost Mediterranean atmosphere.
