Paktuynen Enkhuizen: Second phase of construction

The construction of the residential quarter ‚Paktuynen‚ on the site of a former paper factory at the southern edge of the historic centre of Enkhuizen is still in progress.

The most extensive part of the scheme is for one-family houses along the Snouck van Loosenpark to the south. A crescent responds to the radial structure of the historic workers housing that is located in the park. The individually designed façades of the one-family houses harmoniously connect to the existing buildings. A direct connection is made between the park and the Oude Haven in the north by a gateway building and by a small street shaped by four apartment buildings.

At present, the second phase of construction is being realised by the SCHOLTENS Groep and the Stichting welwonen, thereby completing the new residential quarter according to the masterplan by Krier · Kohl.
