This is a design for a residential neighbourhood of approx. 500 houses in the gently undulating landscape around the former village Amby. The project is a testing-ground for the investigation of urbanistic and architectural implications of an everyday programme. Subtle differences in level as well as existing orchards and hedge paths have been meticulously integrated into the plan and given a new lease of life. Commissioned by the Maastricht Municipality and a consortium of market parties, the assignment encompasses the triad of urban design, design of public space and supervision of the plan elaboration.
