woods water meadows A wooded area near the coast is home to three residential buildings, Woods, Water and Meadows, which provide 103 homes and daytime activities for clients who live independently or in sheltered accommodation and emergency facilities. The specific target group led OIII architects to tackle the process by allowing a design to evolve from cooperation, by involving residential groups and via intensive exchanges between the team leaders, architects, clients and advisors. The plans were developed on the basis of the changing needs of residents. Each residential group is characterised by varying degrees of individual and common areas. Linking, stacking and combining these areas creates a whole which forms not just a cohesive entity but is also identifiable at individual level. The architecture therefore literally embodies how residents and employees live and work together.
