The development of six newbuild homes was part of the planning for the museum quarter. The homes were located against the Quist Wing of the Noordbrabants Museum and over the new underground car park of the museum complex. The six individual homes on the Beurdsestraat have been designed to fit beautifully into the small-scale historic town.
The exhibition wing of the Noordbrabants Museum, designed in 1987 by architect Wim Quist, offered a rather closed appearance on the Beurdsestraat side. The new homes have their backs to the museum and look out on to the renovated Weversplaats and adjoining Beurdsestraat. This means the avoidance of blind façades and an end to a decades-old hiatus in the urban fabric.
