Rietzoom Housing Development Rotterdam

Orange Architects designed 17 apartments and 18 single-family houses for Dura Vermeer Bouw Zuid West. The construction was completed in the fourth quarter of 2020.

The Rietzoom Housing project is located in the Rietzoom neighbourhood of the Park 16Hoven development. The abundance of greenery and water in the immediate surroundings prompted the concept of sculptural building blocks which, with their staggered facades and roof terraces, harmonize well with the explicitly green character of the neighbourhood.

The single-family homes have a flat roof and are grouped into volumes of two, three and five units. They alternate with pitched-roof houses – designed by ZVA – and are located on both sides of Tinbergenlaan, one of the most urban avenues in Park 16Hoven, with a green zone in the center of the street profile where a row of big trees will be planted.

Projections and setbacks on the street facade create space for balconies and entrances and lend the building blocks a remarkably sculptural form. Differences in the colour and texture of brickwork emphasize this plasticity. Moreover, bay windows and corner turrets form a contemporary expression of a rich rural architecture style.

The apartments are grouped in two compact four-level volumes situated at the end of the avenue where a small bridge for pedestrians and cyclists crosses the water and connects with the green edge of the district. Both volumes are connected at entrance level with a garage for bikes and cars, which has a green roof and a green bank sloping down to the water.

The appearance of the brick ensemble is largely determined by spacious balconies and terraces that overlook the water. Floor-high sliding panels of glass draw plenty of light into the apartments and offer views of the green surroundings.
