Last Friday a yellow container arrived in Wittevrouwen (Utrecht), the second neighbourhood of the ‘Straatlokaal’ project. We delivered many flyers around the little square and only two days later, the container was already stuffed with lots of useful material. Great surprise!


Today we disassembled the building in Leidsche Rijn to make it transportable. The complete package will be picked up tomorrow to be stored until the beginning of May, when we will bring it to the city centre.

Leidsche Rijn

Leidsche Rijn is a new and still evolving district on the outskirts of Utrecht with about 25.321 inhabitants and 2500 hectares. Before 1997 it used to be a rural area. Some elements like water, ditches, trees and special farms have been preserved and are now interwoven with the new buildings.
