The 48 water villas are situated in an experimentally developed housing area at the periphery of Almere. The concept for the water villas was about creating a living environment with a maximal flexibility to meet individual needs. Each villa consists of a basic package, which can be extended and elaborated depending on personal preferences and lifestyle of the client.
The basic package consists of two concrete modules of six meters in the width, ten meters in the depth and three meters in the height. The first floor is shifted to obtain a roof balcony. An optional package is developed to extend the basic housing type according to individual needs. It offers the possibility to elaborate and increase its volumetric potential.
