Open space concept – neighbourhood extension ‘Op Hudelen’

The new “school complex” extends the neighbourhood by strips of land with facilities of the public infrastructure: Maison Relais, Primary school, Gymnasium, Précoce and Pre-school. They are grouped in an L-shape along the new neighbourhood square which forms the central, multifunctional square surface.

The open space concept establishes for the extension area of the neighbourhood “op Hudelen” an open space structure made of green corridors. The guiding principle is to prolong existing, adjacent green surfaces along the edges of the area and to upgrade them to transition zones.
