Little C is a high density mixed use urban development near the center of Rotterdam. The plot developed is small and surrounded by infrastructure. On the westside lies the Coolhaven, an old little harbor and important route for inland waterway transport. The idea is to create a new urban neighborhood with an atmosphere that fits in with iconic brick buildings that dominate this part of the city.
The introduction of a rigid grid filled in with 15 small scale blocks brings a new logic to the site. The grid allows to connect it to the surrounding neighborhoods like the Erasmus MC and the Hogeschool Rotterdam. Within the grid there is place for three little squares which give the neighborhood their own addresses and makes it a pleasant place to stay.
