De Landerijen residential area, Lelystad
The expansion plan for De Landerijen in Lelystad, which comprises 58 units in 9 types, is intended as an attractive alternative that takes advantage of the overflow from the Randstad conurbation. In view of the rapid construction of housing in the middle and upper price brackets, Lelystad is endeavouring to develop into an overspill town, and is not afraid to compete with Almere in the process. Along one of the lengthwise sides of the rectangular urban development plan stand cheaper terraced houses with corner accents. Behind this stands a villa park with detached and semi-detached properties, forming the transition to the Lanservaart waterway. The whole ensemble exudes a modern rural image. With their thatched roofs and timber-clad façades, the three luxury houses on the Lanservaart blend into the surrounding polder landscape in an especially natural manner.
The idea is to establish an urban perimeter around the plan that dovetails with the other subsectors and traffic thoroughfares, forming an ensemble with a distinctive, more rural identity within this constellation.
The smaller terraced houses and the monumental semi-detached villas on the perimeter are realised in brick and have tiled roofs. In the inner area one also finds white and black houses – there is also a pair of the latter type overlooking the waterway – built using sandstone-coloured brick and shingle façades and topped with thatched roofs. Their appearance, with a projecting saddleback roof and a balcony around the house, is a contemporary reinterpretation of Gerrit Rietveld’s summerhouse at Breukelerveen and of the countryhouse tradition in Bergen and the Gooi. These generously proportioned properties have spacious living rooms and bedrooms and an attic studio. The garages of the semi-detached houses are situated in the back garden, so these properties also stand like autonomous objects and their gardens are optically enlarged. The majority of houses are oriented transversely and have a recessed balcony that overlooks the side garden.
