Patio Houses Ypenburg (MVRDV)
Two islands in this sector of Ypenburg have had patio dwellings designed for them by John Bosch and MVRDV. Bosch’s neighbourhood assembles 144 units in nine perimeter blocks with gateways accessing the courtyards. Plants grow against the vivid green courtyard walls. All dwellings are entered from this side; their front facades have capacious balconies hovering above the water. Parking is concentrated in community parking lots dotted with trees.
