Woningbouw Bosrijk

EindhovenThomas Bedaux, Bedaux De Brouwer

The ‘Groenplaats Bosrijk’ (literally ‘green place’ Bosrijk) is part of the Eindhoven district Meerhoven, situated on former army land. The park-like terrain derives its name from the monumental array of trees. The trees and open green spaces form the backbone of the urban design scheme by Karres en Brands: various housing clusters have been slotted into the landscape like autonomous units, or like ‘sculptures in a sculpture garden’. Each cluster is tailored to its specific location, which produces a great variety of development, dwelling type and size and living environment.
