't Getouw Abbeyfieldhuis

‘Private housing and co-living’, is the mission statement of Abbeyfield Flanders. This small scale housing project in the heart of Westmalle aims to anchor this mission in reality. Nine private apartments will be extended by a wide communal space and garden, by this means you can split your time according to your personal and communal needs with fellow residents. 

The houses for elderly over 55 years are designed to anticipate old age with all necessary comfort. Living together with others for a lifetime is the purpose.

Cohousing goes hand in hand with sustainability, affordability and viability. That’s why this project commits to low-tech building. The traditional way of building is questioned and energy-efficiency is resolutely chosen as a priority.
