Project coordinator: Buurtschap te Veld - Minitopia

In 2021 together with the Minitopia team Tanéa started working on the coordination for the 100 compact homes. During this project she helped with the selection of the participants based on design and sustainability. She coordinated the meetings for future residents and was the contact person for many residents during the process. She was also involved in the work group that focuses on participation of residents, stakeholders, partners for Buurtschap te Veld.

Buurtschap te Veld is a new residential area in Eindhoven North, located between Castiliëlaan and Huizingalaan. Buurtschap te Veld stands for living together in the green. Literally. Here we give a new and contemporary interpretation of a neighborhood. Where residents are connected with each other and with the landscape.

The design of the neighborhood invites you to build a community together with your neighbors. No anonymous building blocks, but groups of houses in varying compositions and lots of common space to meet each other and develop activities.

Within Buurtschap te Veld we will realize one plot with fifty compact (self-build) homes, these will be allocated to the participants in phase 1. The remaining fifty micro homes will be divided over ten 'rooms'. Here there will be a mix of self-build and ready-to-build homes with social rental, free sector rental and owner-occupied homes.

At Buurtschap te Veld you step straight from your home into nature. We are building on the existing green environment and also adding lots of trees. The homes are made of mostly natural materials and are located in the middle of the landscape: large "gardens" that you share with the rest of the neighborhood.
