Dutch housing association GroenWest, Bébouw Midreth and councillor David Moolenburgh of the municipality of De Ronde Venen have officially kicked off the construction of 38 social rental homes. The houses are being built in the new residential neighbourhood of Vinkeveld in the town of Vinkeveen.
The plan for Vinkeveld involves the construction of 200 houses, both rented and owner-occupied. A characteristic feature of the attractive 1930s-style houses is their sustainable and energy-efficient qualities including good insulation on the facade and windows (triple glazing) and the installation of solar panels.
The plan was designed by Korbee van der Kroft Architecten from the Dutch town of Noordwijk. The houses are expected to be completed in the spring of 2018.
