AG VESPA Gravinstraat-Gijselsstraat

This residential project consists of a mix of different housing types, an underground parking garage and a communal courtyard. It was realized on a plot in the middle of an incomplete building block near the Turnhoutse Poort in Borgerhout (Antwerp).

The design starts with the question of how the collective character of the outdoor space can be stimulated as a place for casual encounters. The communal garden therefore plays a crucial role in the internal circulation. It is the node between the public domain, the communal areas and the private outdoor and indoor spaces.
