New light

The center of the neighbourhood had come into existence more than 40 years ago and had not changed since that time, actually. When it was asked to intervene on this, we spent some time there and took a good look around, talked, listened en felt what the air was like. And then we made the decision to start working from the hypothesis that in all these years the average daily temperature in this place had risen with at least 5 degrees. And that is how we introduced warmth and that is how terraces, balconies and shaded areas arose. The street was suddenly being used by people who made conversation again. Further ahead, a new kind of market was being organized where goods were sold that no one had ever seen. And all of these things made that young and old people visiting this place did so because they adored its light.
