De Vuurplaats

De Vuurplaats, in Oosterwold, is an initiative of four households with the shared desire to live in freedom and connection. Symbolically, a fire pit is centrally located in the residential area, around which the group can meet each other in a casual manner. Although the project exists

of private plots, the gardens are connected to each other. In addition, the same theme is reflected in the architecture of the houses: spacious overhangs and glass fronts in the corners, allowing the inside and outside to flow into each other and the houses to optically rhyme with each other. Yet each home has an individual shape and facade. In this way, a beautiful combination of collectivity and individuality has been achieved.

How do you divide plots and which facilities do you want to share with each other or not? What is the balance between individual expression and a coherent image? Woonpioniers guided this group in several steps in answering these types of questions. After approval of the spatial plan by the municipality, three of the households also commissioned us to design their home.

This project shows how the 'Oosterwold dream' was once intended; collectives that, in mutual cohesion, independently shape a connected, green living environment. Growing food in the clay under the Dutch skies, sharing things (such as the riding mower!) and space in and around the house for (sustainable) entrepreneurship.​

Tiny Village Rentree

At a unique location in Deventer close to the river IJssel, commissioned by a Housing corporation and in consultation with a residents group, Woonpioniers designed eight “tiny” social rental homes and a community building in a green garden. This project will be realized in 2022.
