Housing Getsewoud (24H Architecture)
Housing Block Kasteel Getsewoud
The Vinex district of Getsewoud has added 5800 housing units to the town of Nieuw-Vennep, doubling it at a stroke. At its centre is a water feature abutted by four green courts, one of which was designed by Charles Vandenhove. As a rule his distinctive architecture is applied in historic town centres, but his sensitive response evidently works equally well in new growth areas. His contribution consists of a U-shaped urban block, a row of detached houses and a single freestanding villa.
