Housing in a Wood


Diemen Hout is a proposed large scale development to the south of Amsterdam, comprising 700 homes, a primary school plus further public amenities. The blocks are arranged around a series of courtyards, leading to a central park with a canal running through its heart. Each courtyard has its own identity, expressed through the design of the public space as well as the surrounding facades that vary in colour and composition from building to building.
