Landscape Urbanism

Ongoing urbanization makes it necessary to integrate city and landscape. A landscape approach zooms out to a higher level and places the city in the regional context of soil, water, ecology, infrastructure and patterns of occupation. The urban design takes natural processes into account, preventing floods, overheating and other problems.
When designing new residential areas, we fold the new development around patterns and elements of the existing landscape. In this way, urbanism reinforces the existing landscape instead of weakening it. Because the Dutch countryside is very divers, our approach results in unique residential areas with a strong identity.
