Three small living rooms – with lamps, a sofa, a table and even slippers – have been constructed by the water in a grass strip at the Boerhavelaan. They were designed by artist Lena van der Wal, who was looking to create domestic meeting places where local residents can go and visit each other in the street. Van der Wal was commissioned for this work by Groningen housing corporations De Huismeesters and Nijestee that wanted to do something back for the residents of the south-western quadrant in the Corpus den Hoorn neighbourhood to compensate for the inconvenience during a major district renewal.
