Inhabited milieu's challenges
The challenge is to develop a spatial strategy implementing a new mix of functions in the central area of Groenewoud, at the same time conceptualizing a garden suburb of the future where existing green character is rethought to be an essential part of climate adaptability. Reinvent this postwar neighbourhood to be an attractive neighbourhood for the twenty first century urban dweller by, carefully designing community-oriented housing typologies, facilities and a new use concept for the surrounding landscape.
Two main design tasks for Groenewoud, Tilburg:
1. Develop a spatial strategy implementing a new mix of functions in the central area of Groenewoud
2. Carefully design community-oriented housing typologies, facilities and a new use concept for the surrounding landscape.
