Genderwaard continues to build Strijp S as a hotspot for creative start-ups and innovative forms of living, working, and recreation. Focusing on revitalising the public space, and enabling the return of the Gender. Providing both social housing and family apartments, Genderwaard makes city living attractive and accessible to everyone.
The original masterplan for Strijp-S, developed by West8, sees many of the office buildings inside of the urban plan area demolished, in order to create room for additional green spaces and residential developments. However, many of these buildings continue to be well used to this day. To meet this challenge, we explored ways to use the available space more efficiently, allowing the creation of new green spaces and amenities.
