Garden village of the future
Meeting and social cohesion are central to the garden village. The neighbourhood is characterised by a typical garden village appearance, with bay windows and masonry detailing as an essential part of the design. Thanks to nesting boxes, solar panels, electric shared cars and a community greenhouse, this neighbourhood is fully in tune with the 21st century.
Green and safe
During the urban development, we took a green and safe character seriously. That is why Tuinbuurt Vrijlandt will have hedges, trees and the centrally located water feature, so that the neighbourhood has a pleasant and social feel.
The streets have been designed with slow traffic in mind. Parking is mainly done in parking courtyards between the building blocks, out of sight. This ensures a child-friendly environment and preserves the character of the original garden village. With success: Tuinbuurt Vrijlandt receives at least 4 stars from the DGBC Residential Quality Mark, which proves that this is a sustainable neighbourhood.
In action for the birds
Ballast Nedam took action together with Vogelbescherming Nederland to make the garden neighbourhood as attractive as possible for birds and other animals. For example, all new residents will receive a bird kit with materials and tips to make their garden as bird-friendly as possible, and various nesting boxes will be installed as built-in bricks in the facades.
As CEO of Ballast Nedam Development, Onno pushes boundaries to make the world a better place for both human and nature.
