The Kleine Driene district in Hengelo, built in the 1950s, is considered one of the finest examples of reconstruction architecture by Van den Broek and Bakema. Although the district is still fairly popular, restructuring is necessary, especially at the housing level. The existing portion houses no longer meet today’s requirements.
Major maintenance was therefore carried out on 148 flats. The work mainly concerned the removal of asbestos, the improvement of the outer skin, the interior, the technical installations and the enlargement of the shower and kitchen area and the balcony.
The new balconies, measuring 400 x 160 cm, will be freely anchored to the existing poured balconies. Due to the insulating capacity of the new balconies, the poured balconies are fully thermally packed. Thanks to this solution, the existing indoor balcony could be closed and thus the shower and kitchen could be enlarged.
