Studio PROTOTYPE presents a connection- oriented residential quality in the Wickevoort Cruquius estate. The development of the Wickevoort estate is a part of an initiative led by AM, an inclusive redevelopment of the SEIN care estate in Cruquius. The urban plan was designed by Venhoeven CS in collaboration with Landlab. Various architects including Venhoeven CS, M3H, Heren 5 and MIX Architectuur worked on various subareas. Studio PROTOTYPE designed 54 unique, ground- level houses within the Hagen subarea.
A wide variety of housing types fully serves the estate. Proposed housing volumes are simple in design. The plinth provides connection with the greenery, taking the form of verandas, integrated herb gardens, pergolas and large open sliding doors.
The neighbourhood adopts the original design idea and translates it in its own way, by using the forms of sheds, pergolas and even within the interior the stylistic features of the design are visible.
