The social housing in the Krokusstraat is an ensemble of 8 buildings and 68 apartments. There are several challenges in this multicultural neighborhood of Winterslag: e.g. the lack of parking, storage and common spaces, even though the area in between the buildings is owned by the municipality and its usable by everyone it is only used as circulation and traffic area and in the green areas solely grass is growing and social interaction is lacking.
Given those challenges the international student group of four is redefining in their project the public area by redesigning circulation pathways, parking area, storage spaces and introducing private areas to distinguish common public areas to allow social interaction and nature to grow. The result will be visible for a very short time until the next rain will erase it.
