HAARLEM TOWNHOUSES

This terrace of 28 townhouses was developed to line the central avenue of a 1970s neighbourhood that was in need of rejuvenation. As a pilot project for further redevelopment, a team of five architects was formed, each assigned to design one house type.

The 4.8 metre-wide narrow house is elongated, with an oriel window on its facade in keeping with local vernacular. Its interior appearance is defined by irregularly shaped rooms of varying dimensions and characteristics on each of the three floors.

The overall design of the terrace alternates between the individual expressions of the various house typologies on the one hand, and the urban block with its shared use of key details – such as type of brick, flashings and garden sheds – on the other.

In collaboration with Marjan van Herpen.
Team supervisor was Cees Nagelkerke.
