Depolderizing - New water part 1, Naaldwijk

The urban plan for the first part of the depolderization of the New Water. This first part shows the possibilities in building waterresistant houses like, floating islands, 'Traverse' villas that are build on a levee and houses on higher ground. Next to the urban plan Waterstudio designed different houses in the area like one of the 'Traverse' villas and a villa on higher ground. The area is a mix of new made water, housing and a green zone that is part of a larger green development.
