Domus Houthaven door Shift: alleen wonen, maar niet alleen zijn

Het nieuwe stedelijk leven is efficiënt, duurzaam én gezellig. Met het project Domus (‘thuis’) Houthaven wil Shift Architecture Urbanism samen met projectontwikkelaar Synchroon de stedeling een plek bieden die het individuele woongenot combineert met gedeelde voorzieningen én een community.
