The polygonal forecourt is the reception zone for children and visitors on their way to the Maison Relais. The paved surface of the forecourt connects the building with the public space and its traffic network. Areas planted with trees and bushes act as a protection and buffer zone against the adjacent transport area and lead towards the future school complex ‘Op Hudelen’.
