June 18, 2020 – Today the WoonCoöp De BinnenHaven is officially established at PVM Notaries in Almere. The WoonCoöp wants to turn the Stadswerfpark in Almere-Haven into a place where independent living and community living go together. A place from with community spirits and gnarled friendships, with neighborly ties that can take a beating. A place for people with social spirits.

The WoonCoöp is a milestone in the development of the winning “Who Cares” competition entry from 2017. The prize-winning plan of bureau SLA in Almere Haven is now about to be realised. The plan for a contemporary, sustainable communal neighbourhood where care for each other and care for the environment go hand in hand will be set up in a cooperative form by and for their residents.
