Matrica - Wonen op Niveau [ projects, , living ]
Urban renewal of a city district of Enschede is to be guided within the rigid restrictions of the new master-plan. This proposal is softening the rigidness on the architectural level by the principles of the 'theme variation'. There are 3 repetitive features for all 80 apartments:

01 the service wall, accommodating all appliances, installations, storage and vertical communication.
02 structural skeleton, making different dimensions of the units possible
03 customization (individualization) of the facade matrix, where all end users can choose the main building interface individually according to their specific wishes.

This is possible with the prefabrication principle.
