Brief Description : The residential of Monnikenhuizen is located at a former soccer sportsground between the estates of Angerenstein and Klarenbeek in Arnhem. The undulating terrain and the existing forested plots provide an excellent opportunity to integrate a small community in the landscape setting. The residential area consists of 204 houses in a mix of appartments, terraced houses and villas. The masterplan divides the areas in two compartiments: the bigger with terraced houses on 4 levels with cul-de-sacs and a smaller one with detached and semi-detached houses. The profile of the dead-end streets is wide enough for a combination of parking spaces and turning round. The cul-de-sacs are connecte by stairs and foot paths lead to a forest path higher up. Between the compartiment a small ecological zone with trees is developed to connect the two park estates.
