Housing development Coriolanuspad

An old local green structure

the avenue to the former Eckart castle, has been intertwined with the green areas of the garden city structure.

The historic oak tree lines

which mark a slow-traffic route, literally cut through the neighborhood.

The monumental route

represents a strict framework for the substitute new buildings, as well as the central parking facilities on the church square. Separating fast and slow traffic will again be the basis of urban planning in this area.

The Coriolanuspad is a housing development project in the Eckart district in Eindhoven. This project comprises the demolition of the existing downstairs and upstairs units and replacing them with 54 new serial terraced houses. The formal and functional conditions for this project have been documented in a zoning plan by architecten|en|en in cooperation with Woonbedrijf and the city council of Eindhoven.

 

The affordable family homes and the public space have been developed as a Design&Build assignment by Stam&deKoning and architecten|en|en. The houses have been designed as abstract blocks in the park in rows of 4 to 8 houses without a clear front or back. These blocks are monochrome, with the exception of the white front doors and storages. The houses border closely on the park. The only barrier between the terraces and the park is a green hedge. The park serves as a large collective outside area for the entire neighborhood.
