The client, WoonWel, wanted to realize social rental houses on four plots along the edge of an enclosed block, small-scale and tailored to the size of the village, unlike the ‘residences’ that appear throughout this kind of small villages. In a second phase, another 36 houses will be built in the green space behind the terraced houses, with a small park for the neighbourhood. The four new clusters are satellites around the central houses, each of them is a gateway to the park, accessible for cyclists and pedestrians. Along the Gistelsesteenweg, the limits of the minimum lot width for terraced houses are searched. All rooms are in a row, the net width inside is 3m60. The central patio enhances the spaciousness and provides abundant light.  By a game of roof surfaces, the new homes are linked to both sides of the existing buildings, and all the new homes have their own individual roof. A large carport can be reached through an underpass in the street and makes a link to the other cluster.
Different ways of brickwork are used to make very subtle differences and to articulate entrance zones.
