Scope and Content

This project series documents the housing and shopping complex in Schilderswijk, The Hague, The Netherlands. While the records were held in the office’s archives this project was assigned the number 31/80. The office assigned the dates 1984-1988 for this project. This project was part of the urban renewal program in Schilderswijk for which Siza designed the urban plan for Deelgebied Zone 5 Schilderswijk-West, the Punt en Komma social housing, Plano de Doedijnstraat, and Van der Vennerpark.

The project consists of two houses, two retail/office spaces, and a parking garage situated on Van der Vennestraat. One house was made with red brick, while the other was given a white exterior. The project was realised with project architect Carlos Castenheira in cooperation with Architektengroep Mecanoo. This project was designed in connexion with the Van der Vennepark [AP178.S1.1985.PR01], which the office archivist identified as 32/80.

The project series contains sketches, studies, plans, elevations, and details. Textual documentation includes a letter from Adri Duivesteijn, The Hague alderman responsible for the urban renewal program, letters from Architektengroep Mecanoo (engeneering firm), notes from meetings on construction, and a letter from Castanheira. Documentation regarding the Van der Vennerpark [AP178.S1.1985.PR01.001] also contains information related to the housing and shopping complex. Also included are photographs of the model, as well as slides of the model, drawings, and the built project. Note that photographs of the built project can also be found among photographic materials for Punt en Komma [AP178.S1.1984.PR02.SS1.015].
