Landscape can be liquid too. Just next to natural park ‘de Biebosch’ which is famous for their tide–related mangroves. We were assigned to design a masterplan for a layout of 96 dwellings for the upper segment. The brief stated the dwellings should be situated in a ‘green’ environment. We successfully reinterpreted the brief by introducing the elements of the Biesbosch to the plot. In short we flooded the polder so now tides and water are the key-elements for the organisation of dwellings. This proved not to be an easy task; The relationship between the height of the homes, the normative high tide and the dykes resulted in very specific starting points for the design. The solutions varied from living on piles to alternative ways of preparing the land for building to a closed mass-haul diagram.
