Urban Design and Landscape Design
Bloemendaal | The Netherlands

A neighbourhood with a central town park that unites sports, school, and the town hall with a multifunctional outdoor space. A place where we pull the polder’s qualities into the plan area and where the continuous green structure is the connecting factor throughout the district.

An integral project with a social heart

We created a new climate-adaptive park in the heart of the town. It combines existing and new social facilities such as the football club, the tennis club, the community centre and the primary school. It also allows for 70 new homes around the park. This will result in a network of larger and smaller public spaces that are well connected and where sports, health, exercise and social interaction come together; the social heart of Vogelenzang.


Wesley will be happy to tell you about it.
