Winner in competition
The team of BURA (formerly known as marco.broekman), LINT landscape architecture and Workshop Architecten designed the winning proposal “De Proeftuin” for the redevelopment site Erasmusveld, Den Haag. On the basis of core values ‘health’, ‘city’ and ‘living together’ a vision for the new neighbourhood is developed, with an elaboration for the first phase.
The urban design for a residential park is located along an eco-belt and exists out of four collective housing blocks and small scale clusters of ground bound dwellings. A housing block of a 100 dwellings is designed for the first phase. The building volume reacts to the park environment through its terraced volume and an inner court which opens up. Collective spaces, like a playroom and a guestroom, can be developed in co-creation with the future residents.
The park has a collective character in which human and natural habitat are well mixed. It provides space for sporting routes, playfields, vegetable gardens and a water filter garden. The water filter garden is accessible via a footbridge; in the garden a collection of different plants creates a good water quality.
The team was one of the four winning design teams of the Open Call ideas competition ‘Proeftuin Erasmusveld’ in 2016. BPD has the intention to continue and develop a preliminary design.
