Masterplan for a mixed-use development in the city center

EVENT SQUARE

BEVEREN, BE

What today is a poorly maintained parking lot close to the central market square, is to become a new lively part of the city center. The site will house the new municipal administrative center, a new police station, housing, offices and commercial activity. The parking lot will be replaced by an underground parking lot. The buildings are wrapped around a new event square, that can be used for a big variety of activities, the weekly food market, the yearly rock festival, etc.

The masterplan sets out clear rules by which the new buildings should be developed. The masterplan also stresses the image quality of the public space. A new circulation is designed to completely separate pedestrian and car flows.
