Integrating the concept of HOFJES ("courtdwellings") with "keyring", a framework for (in)formal neighboorhood care!
Together with architect Peter van Assche (bureau SLA), care-expert Bart Lammers (bureau Ruyterveer ) and Kirsten Hannema, we have submitted to the competition WHO CARES. The competition asked for innovative ideas integrating solutions for the urgent social problem ( the growing demand for care at home from both professionals and volunteers) into the existing physical built environment. We won with our idea which is based on Peter's book 'handboek voor hedendaagse hofjes' and Bart's concept of 'Burenbond'. We are proud we have been chosen (only 20 out of 176) to improve and extend our concept. I am part of the team as a designer of public space, integrating needs and wishes to make the public space working for all, young & old
