Urbis advices across the full spectrum of the urban landscape and political discipline, at different scales. We mainly focus on the sustainable future task, restructuring of the urban area. Linked to this, we design urban outdoor spaces and parks.
Our urban and landscape design for the new district Bentwijck was the basis for the winning tender. We worked together with Van Wijnen. It's a neighbourhood with 200 houses and an elementary school. The council of Alphen aan den Rijn and Van Wijnen have [...]
In January we organized an information evening for residents and interested parties of the Ringers quarter. Urbis presented the urban design together with BPD and the local council. Questions were asked and new ideas were given. The Ringers quarter project is the redevelopment of the terrains around the historical chocolate factory monument Ringers. The location will be transformed into an attractive urban living environment and will become the link between the historical city centre and the new 'Overstad' location.
We are excited to participate with the local council of Utrecht and the housing corporations Bo-Ex, Mitros and Portaal, in their efforts to make an environmental vision for the Kanaleneiland-Transwijk district. We map out the district and we are the sounding board for all parties involved. We contribute with our expertise and knowledge of urban design. We aim to provide a long term vision for the living environment of the area. We focus on urban living, sustainability and energy transition, mobility, accessability and climate adaptation.
In september we visited Flanders with the entire Urbis team, where we saw some very interesting inner city restructuring sites. In Gent we visited cultural centre ‘Krook’, in Leuven the redevelopment site ‘Vaartkom’ and we wandered around the embankments in Antwerp. We also walked through the beautiful car-free zone of the former Militar Hospital grounds, a green oasis in the inner city of Antwerp. Completely inspired we returned to our Rotterdam office to continue our work on national and international projects. Want to know more? Contact us anytime!
