The plans form part of the ‘Punt-Schipperbuurt’ urban development master plan drawn up by architects Geurst & Schulze. In this master plan, not only did they seek inspiration in the original qualities of the 19th century architecture, but also in the character of Mediterranean cities, the aim being to better meet the wishes of the new communities.
JSA has designed four row blocks and two end blocks. The blocks vary in height from 3 to 6 floors and get lower where the plan meets the existing surroundings. The blocks are provided with abundant balconies, terraces and loggias.
In the manifestation and materialisation of the building blocks, a representation has been sought that fits in both with 19th century Rotterdam brick architecture and with Mediterranean architecture.
