About Spring!

  • What is Spring! ?

    In 2017, the van den Meerendonk family bought an old officebuilding in Barendrecht. Within one year, it was completely transformed into what is now “the house of many homes”. Project Spring! Barendrecht consists of 57 furnished and upholstered micro houses, that are available for temporary let (maximum of 24 months). Our premium short-stay micro-homes are available to five specific types of residents: students, starters, refugees with a residence permit, seasonal expats and seekers for immediate residence. On June 1st 2018, Spring! opened its doors to the first residents.

    Spring! Is the beginning of a new chapter in your life. It is not just a place to live: it’s complementary living. Spring is a place where you can work and meet people, who are all on their journey through life. At Spring, you can come home to yourself. Be what you want to be. Go where you want to go.
