A robust framework
BURA designed an urban concept including a robust framework which respects the existing structure and adds a new layer to it. This will make the area fordable and add new parks and routes. We have studied an urban model in which the approximately 780 new-build homes, existing ensembles and industrial buildings provide a characteristic and attractive part of the city.

A walkable and green neighbourhood
Important pillars of the plan are the green character and mobility concept. BURA expresses the green quality of the Veluwe in the design of the buildings and the public space. The former Kayersbeek will also be redeveloped, including park and paths. We are creating a car-free area and the pedestrian central. In this way we create a pleasant living environment where people like to be and can meet each other in many places.
