The project site is situated in a very dense urban neighbourhood with a lack of public space. The building site: a courtyard inside a building block, is currently being used as a parking lot. The project's aim was to build a new Clubhouse for a local youth organisation (Chiro). FELT designed a highly compact building, but also strived for the thorough renovation of the courtyard. Turning it into a multi-functional square in close relations with the clubhouse. This way the project accommodates not only the demands of the client, it also seizes the opportunity to contribute to the public realm in this highly populated area.
