Quite revolutionary social city built in 1957 by architect Van der Meeren.

The basic principle was simple, quickly build social housing in pre-fabricated materials ready to assemble. The houses were built in a month. Here, 10 buildings were arranged on a plot of land with trees and landscaped gardens.

These homes were intended for retired households.

 

The current site, which has 4 long buildings with a total of 50 housing units, has just undergone major renovations, insulation, rejuvenation and even embellishment !

The concretes were painted in bright colors, interesting and creative realization by  &SENSE architectural firm .

Here is a remarkable ensemble, surprisingly cheerful and fresh, a little holiday air blows here.
