Project Description

Haarrijn Utrecht

A special project on a well known site. Along the A2 highway, where every car passes between Utrecht and Amsterdam, is the last urban site located before the 'Groene Hart' landscape appears. Here Urbis designed a masterplan for mixed use. Small and larger companies, dwellings and a small recreational area, even including a beach at the artificial lake side. Very characteristic for the design is the gradual difference between the borders of the city and the adjustment to the landscape.
