The project involves the redevelopment of a disused home for the elderly from 40 rooms to 13 apartments. The garden that takes up approximately 1 hectare is turned into a communal garden, with small private terraces planned to acts as tiny islands around the park. These are to be embedded in such a way that they are geared to the organic quality of the treed slopes of Kluisbos. Putting in small private sections allows future residents to use the communal park in harmony. ‘Privatising’ small enclaves within a larger collective whole avoids the kind of social tensions that occur on occasion when grounds are open to shared use.
