A dynamic plinth linked to various outdoor spaces, each with their own atmosphere

Context-related volumes on top of the plinth units for crisis and refuge reception have a private outdoor space on each level

The housing units for the homeless have a less enclosed character and function (partly) independently, looking out over the vegetable garden.

The distribution of the crisis accommodation and the refugee houses is horizontal: each type of accommodation has its own floor and its own outdoor area. Central to the various volumes is the circulation. This is linked to the vertical circulation and provides a safe passage from entrance to unit.

The multifunctional zone is the most public function in the programme and is therefore strategically positioned so that it is both part of the CAW and can function independently for the neighbourhood.
