Town Extension

The buildings are modulated to the qualities of the park, the canal and the dynamics of the bridge and the quay. The roof areas of the building next to the bridge are bended to form a fifth facade, forming a promenade. We can also find this dynamics in the neighbouring allotment. On the first floor of the second building, there are public functions with a strong relation with the surroundings. A strong relationship between the canal, the building and the park is being established. In collaboration with A33, LEUVEN.
