The revitalization of a former industrial zone takes shape in a new residential area, where the motto is ‘Living in a park atmosphere’. The existing ‘Oranjepark’ flows naturally into the new urban plan, where most of the parking is realized underground. The dwellings are elevated onto mounds, clearly separating public and private space. Historical elements like a water tower and a former firehouse, as well as a reference to a former estate, solidifying the cultural heritage of the location. Eye catcher is an apartment complex situated along the inner harbor that ‘Buizengat’ is named after.
