Mutants

Marlies Rohmer as Architects

The cluster of mutated stolpboerderijen (instances of a traditional Dutch farmhouse type with a pyramid roof) bears all the hallmarks of a rustic environment: informality, glimpses of the landscape between the buildings, irregular village-like ensembles, deviations in the building line and differences of scale. The smallest volumes are detached houses which are the most expensive type of dwelling. Other volumes are divided into two or four apartments. The colossal volume with sixteen units under one roof (the ‘church’ of the new village) contains social sector housing. Its monolithic execution, with the same material used for both the roof and the walls, has a massive, sculptural effect.
