Opposite primary school De Linde on the Brasschaatsteenweg in Achterbroek a piece of land could be redeveloped. Instead of maintaining the traditional building lines within the contours of the old subdivision, in consultation with the municipality of Kalmthout, a different location was sought that could mean added value not only for future residents, but also for the image quality and experience of Achterbroek self. By investing in an underground parking garage, the main volume can be placed to the rear and space is created on the street side that gives space and air to the public space. The children of school age can now safely cross the street here. The residents of Residentie Thillo enjoy both the front garden and the open space behind the main building.
