  Planning practice is gradually turning to integrated development. Nevertheless, mixed use projects and self-managed housing still encounter many obstacles especially in legal terms and decision-making processes.
More than solitary buildings, development of collective plots allows for fruitful combinations of use. Areas of ± 1 Ha (10.000m2) make a presence strong enough to embed in and relate to its direct environment, and create a community in itself. Collective, semi-public or time-shared spaces such as (play-) gardens or bicycle-sheds can be integrated into the design and make the 1Ha+ permeable. Making use of smart building methods, sufficient quantity, energysaving and efficient design of installations, it is possible to get an attractive price.
