Vinexed balconies

Netherlands, Barendrecht, Carnisselande, Middeldijkerplein (uncut)


Carnisselande is a VINEX suburb at the southern border of the agglomeration Rotterdam. Suburban civilization is contained, can’t advance further because of the natural border the Oude Maas river

forms ;-)


Like in many (most?) other sururbanisation social and private housing projects in the Netherland the choice of facade is the ubiquitous dark red masonry (in this case made less severe by bricks in contrasting colours) over a concrete skeleton. And like Akbar says, the arrangment of the balconies is also 'not uncommon'.


#98 of the Urban Frontiers set and # 8 of the Carnisselande set.
