A so-called residential villa has been realized in Geleen. This is a small-scale residential building containing 12 apartments. With the construction of the residential villa, the development of the Haese district has been completed. The residential villa is built on a prominent location on Rijksweg-Noord, which has traditionally been the connecting road between Geleen and Sittard, and together with the existing buildings it forms the connection in structures.
The residential villa has a modest design, in which the sleek stucco frames alternate with surfaces of brick and aluminum frames. Thanks to its light color scheme, the modern residential villa contrasts with the green surroundings, creating a special spatial integration. Starters and seniors will be able to live here in a pleasant surrounding.
The residential villa is very energy efficient. Residents of the apartments have virtually no energy costs, thanks to the high-quality insulation and the use of a heat pump and solar panels.
The building is also fully realized from prefab elements. This means that the floors, walls and roofs, containing a steel frame construction, were delivered as large elements and assembled on site. As a result, far fewer transport movements were needed and the residential villa was quickly realized. This construction method also caused minimal inconvenience to local residents.
