Eigen huis en tuin – Wezep

ClientDelta Wonen, Zwolle
CountryThe Netherlands


This “residential service area” for elderly, disabled and other dependent people strives for a balance between individual freedom, a collective sense of security and a potential need for care.


Five compact buildings are placed freely on the site, like villas in a garden or farms in a yard, and fit in a natural manner in the rural setting of Wezep.


Private gardens, common green spaces, ‘courtyards’ and compact parking clusters, together with the houses, build a diverse tissue, ​​accessible by semi-public hedge-lined paths.


The simple grid layout of buildings and site guarantees programmatic interchangeability and flexibility without compromising design or composition, both in the design phase and after completion.
