Photographer's Note

The Chassιe Area is a redevelopment of a former military compound in the inner city of Breda.. The urban plan was made by Rem Koolhaas from the OMA (Office of Metropolitan Architecture) . The public spaces and landscaping was designed by West8.
The area consists of terraced housing, apartments, the city office, a museum (in the former barracks) a theatre, a pop music stage (partly housed in the former officers quarters of the barracks) surrounded by a park.
Displayed here is the section with the 3 storey Theaterhouses, which consists of three rows, called Vaudeville, Grand Theatre , Opera (prices between 300 and 500 K €). The names are inspired by Herman Herzbergers Chassιe Theater nearby. They are designed by Theo van Esch of the Architecten Werkgroep Tilburg.

A speciality is that the houses and apartments have no private gardens – as you van see here they have a direct access to the public space of the Chassιe Square which in fact is the roof of the underground parking (serviced by lifts). The concrete roof is lined with Portuguese granite.
Building residential areas this way forms a break with Dutch tradition. Most tenants and house owners love their garden with adjacent parking space. The last ten years this is changing a bit. I like this – it adds to the feeling of urban modernity and transparency.
In the background the new Municipal office 1a, by Claus & Kaan architects. The office is a part of the outer ring of the Chassιe area and It’s placed on pillars to make visual contact with the old town. To keep out the noise a major part of the space between the pillars is glass

It was damp & foggy and a wonderful lens flare was the result.
