Type 1:In Case of flooding, the workspace will be moved to the first floor. The violent flooding has taken apart the temporary constructions on the ground Floor. The units closest to the water come with deep point foundations, analog to constructions in the Netherlands. In a worst case scenario, at least the steel skelleton should survive the flooding.Type 2:To enable natural cross ventilation, the apartments reach from one facade to the other.. A reduced building structure meets the basic needs of the residents and can be extended horizontally and vertically. The compartmentation of rooms and the arrangement of the facade is left to the owner of the apartment. The participation of the residents leads to an identifying process.
