Etymology[edit] The word, of Dutch origin, literally translates as "living yard"[2] or "residential grounds".[3]

History[edit] An old Dutch street turned into a woonerf Since the invention of automobiles, cities have been predominantly constructed to accommodate the use of automobiles.[4] The entire locality of Emmen, Netherlands was designed as a woonerf in the 1970s.[5] In 1999 the Netherlands had over 6000 woonerven[6] and today around 2 million Dutch people are living in woonerven.[7] The benefits of the woonerf are promoted by woonERFgoed, a network of professionals and residents.[8] In 2006 it was reported that people in Hesselterbrink, a neighborhood of Emmen, were disillusioned about how the woonerf principle had become another traffic engineering measure that "entailed precious little more than signs and uniform standards". They have now encompassed the shared space principles as a way of rethinking the woonerf. They are reported to "now know that car drivers should become residents. Eye contact and human interaction are more effective means to achieve and maintain attractive and safe areas than signs and rules".[5] [9]
