"Wilgenrijk is a reinterpretation of old and familiar elements that are linked to contemporary ideas".

“Good architecture is rooted in the past and is future-proof.
The Maassluise School is based on a contemporary interpretation of traditional architecture. A house looks like a house, a barn like a barn, a roof like a roof. Form and function have a direct relationship with each other and it is crystal clear that these are New Holland houses”.

Urbanism and Architecture

Conversearchitects together with ECHO Urban Design developed the design concept that was inspired by the traditional design of a Brinkdorp. These medieval green villages were built on sand ridges to keep people‘s feet dry. This created small villages where the center was higher than its surroundings. Uitzicht‘s green inner green space, like a brink, serves as a central gathering place for the community.

To create the feeling and atmosphere of our own Uitzicht neighbourhood, we have implemented recurring elements and details, such as dormer windows and fixed glass corners. There are three distinct house types, each of which pays homage to the traditional Brinkdorp design in its own way. These variations are characterized by different traditional Dutch building materials such as ceramic tiles, metal and thatch roofing. All houses feature a hand-formed mixed grey brick facade with different shades of dark to light grey.
