There are many visible characteristics to be found in Era Contour’s new residential complex ‘De Oriënt’ in The Hague, that remind one of the Far East. For instance, on the inner courtyard there are three striking domes whose ceilings will be painted in a typical Eastern style by Pepijn van den Nieuwendijk. The design for the domes’ ceilings come fromworkshops to be given for future residents and people from the neighbourhood. Pepijn, who supervises the workshops, selects a number of designs that will be included in his paintings. In this way the creativity of the future Orient residents flows back into the building project, and Era Contour and its partners demonstrate that they support a high-quality living environment in their housing complexes.
