The new neighborhood with single-family homes and apartments is typical for the current restructuring task of post-war housing estates. Right next to the centre of Hoofddorp a 50’s and 60’s district with building strips will be transformed. Urban planning and architecture refer to the classic feeling of a garden village with living in a relaxed setting. The architecture follows the village grain and sober architecture that characterizes the post-war expansions around the centre of Hoofddorp. Green pedestrian courtyards bind the blocks and form the neighborhood. Yet the plan has a high density that appeals to its proximity to the urban centre.

The site is where the elevated 101 Freeway connects to the surface streets at Market and becomes Octavia Boulevard – the entrance to north/west sector of San Francisco. The First Baptist Church with its classical façade and strong cornice is one pylon of this entrance. Mirroring this mass, on the other side of Octavia Boulevard, 8 Octavia completes the gateway. This entry is seen as an opportunity to present our new city, one that folds tradition and innovation.

Natural light was the top design priority for SENS: it defined the façade design, and the floor –to – ceiling glazing, and from half way up light can enter the interiors, framing the majestic views on to the Popocatépetl, Iztaccihuatl, Santa Fe, Inter lomas and Paseo de la Reforma—views deserving pride of place.

The strategy: The project stems from the desire to decline the concept of sustainability, specific in this competition, in three distinct areas: environmental sustainability, social sustainability and economic sustainability. The stated goal is to create a system in which the three fields can interact and integrate in order to reach equilibrium without one of the three areas of the system, which normally happens, can take precedence over others. To create this system, one of the aspects taken into consideration was the ability to move away from the traditional housing system in which the threshold of building represents a limit insideoutside trying to include in the own building a whole series of activities that can aggregate functions and increase the opportunities to meet and socialize the inhabitants. The basic idea is that the internal layout of the building is transformed into a “public square” open to the outside integrating, as mentioned, functions traditionally handled from outside and defining the building, in fact, as an hybrid: this combination of features provides the possibility to the residents of the building to meet, socialize and discuss transforming the whole neighborhood in a community, overcoming the possible socio-economic and cultural-linguistic differences.
