Nowadays refugees find shelter in camps or empty prisons, far from ordinary everyday life and from a nice welcome. I think refugees in the Netherlands are entiteled to a more liveable and comfortable place for their temporary stay. We should offer them a place of their own, where they feel welcome and get the oppertunity to settle down for a while. I want to give them a stay where they can be alone with themselves but also unite with other refugees. By joining them in this Bloom On villages this idea will become reality!
With Bloom On the refugees can combine their forces. The Bloom on structure offers space for refugees to open shops or other facilities. The Bloom On offers private and community space, where they can relax en enjoy life. Every house is surrounded by green, vertical gardens for a relaxed and happy stay.
One Bloom structure consists of 5 houses, 1 bathhouse/sanitary facilities for 5 families and 1 community building for shops or other features. The Bloom structure can easily been build up on site. Outside the wooden structure feels close to a natural environment. It looks comfortable and invites you to stay for a while!

With this bloom shape of building it is important to study the positioning of the buildings. To optimize everyones privacy and daylight accessibility. With my research I came to the following solution for the plan of the village.
