Bastion island, Leeuwarden

The inspiration for Bastioneiland comes from the surrounding landscape. On the edge of the village an estate and a beguinage (settlement of house originally lived in by a religious order) enjoy the wonderful open landscape. Together they are the focal point for the surroundings, marking the transition from countryside to village. The 'beguinage' building has been built on an island. The units form a whole, but are still individually recognisable. All the houses look onto the water. The living area and kitchen on the groundfloor have direct access onto the terrace and private jetty. This is the point where the view opens up to the wide landscape.
