Charlois, the gate in between the city and the village

There are allready a few gates in the area and i would like to bring these back and so even more. To me gates are an interval in between different worlds. These worlds are crossed by three different lines.

The main road is the road for travelling from home – work. Which leads to the suburban roads. Within these suburban roads are a several walking lines introduced.

 

To interrupt these long suburban roads, i’m going to make appartement blocks. Which are not in the same line as the suburban housing blocks. These appartment blocks are in a total different architectural style which freshes up the existing suburban roads. These blocks are 50 cm lifted up to make a chummy private space and that’s also to make a difference between the appartment blocks alongside the city roads.
