A new publication for our Grunobuurt residential project in Groningen featuring MaccreanorLavington director Gerard Maccreanor




The Grunobuurt is­ a neighbourhood originally built in the 1920’s for railway workers. Many of the existing houses had reached the end of their lifespan, providing the opportunity to regenerate the neighbourhood with dwellings built to modern construction and energy standards.  The main characteristic feature of the attractive existing dwellings is the uniform brickwork with details in relief.  This motif forms the basis of the architectural expression of the new buildings.  Other existing qualities, such as the unity of the neighbourhood and the high-quality green spaces, form key elements of the urban plan by de Zwarte Hond.

We therefore particularly enjoy to hear that residents are satisfied with the quality of their apartment and the surroundings.
