community living along the Spaarne river
Where the Spaarne river enters the city of Haarlem, housing opportunities for the local young adult population are on the rise. The site, formerly used as a high voltage transformer station, will accommodate a community living courtyard building housing around 140 apartments in a variety of dwelling types, ranging from 25 m2 studios to 50 m2 two room apartments.
By proposing a community living building the development aims to reduce the gap between the low supply and high demand of housing for young adults in the vicinity of Haarlem. To safeguard that the development contributes to the solution of the challenge, the houses are earmarked for local young professionals in the age group of 18 to 28, offering relevant facilities to make living here utterly comfortable.
Think about indoor car- and bicycle parking facilities, a public café to meet up with friends and family, a lively community living room to rendezvous with your neighbors or perhaps you desire a more serene space to focus on your study endeavors: 1828 Haarlem offers it all.
The site, confined by the Spaarne river, the Spaarndamseweg and the bridge head of the Schoterbrug, is located between the dunes and meadows of Noord-Holland, with the city center of the picturesque city of Haarlem just a 10-minute bicycle ride away.
