The plot on the Werftsesteenweg is located southwest of the center of Heist-op-den-Berg, 200 meters from the train station. This project consists of a home for supportive living with 12 bedrooms and common areas in combination with six individual apartments.

The ground floor and the first floor together form the home for supported living. This property is intended for persons with a moderate to severe mental disability in the age category of 20-70 years. As there is a variety of residents, variation in the bedrooms was also offered.

The two floors above the house contain six apartments. All accommodation units are accessed via the centrally located entrance hall that is accessed via the spacious underpass that connects the street with the collective garden. The circulations are always compact and well-designed, creating as many useful living spaces as possible that have been designed with good furniture as a goal.
