Dutch Complex Housing: Design for Density
The investigation presented in this paper explores a particular form of housing in the Netherlands, here called complex housing, to understand the design principles that Dutch architects and urban designers employ in its design. The paper discusses two of the nine examples that form the basis for the research. The typological analysis of the study examines site, massing, articulation (materials, fenestration, color), courtyard, programmatic functions, housing types (row houses, maisonettes, flats, penthouses), access, outdoor space, organization, and syntactical structure.
