Project Description

Vathorst Velden II Amersfoort

Vathorst Velden II is centrally located within Vathorst Vinex location. In addition to a housing program (approx. 1000 homes), the plan part also includes a shopping and facilities center. The design is based on the underlying landscape structure, consisting of a sand ridge and plot patterns of meadows. The valuable wooded banks and green structures are crucial, giving the district a strong green character. Urbis was responsible for the urban design, supervision and design of the outer space of the district.
