Houses, multi-family houses, neighbourhood support functions and SMEs
GFA approx. 17,300 m² above ground + 7000 m² half-underground, 145 residential units
Oudenaarde, Leupegem, Watermolenstraat
The site is located at a former commercial site on the edge of Oudenaarde / Leupegem. It is located between the urban fabric of Leupegem and the green landscape of the Flemish Ardennes. The objective of the project is to acquire these two spatial entities.
The project includes:
/ Newly built community facilities
/ Newly built SME zone with multi-purpose hall
/ 8 newly built multi-family residences containing 116 units
/ 21 newly built single-family residences
/ 16 newly built semi-detached houses
/ A semi-underground car park with space for approximately 150 cars
The existing industrial buildings on the site will be torn down. A new public space will be built on two levels at a central location on the site: a square that will be half a level higher than the existing ground surface and a semi-underground car park beneath it. The two levels will be connected visually by means of large openings in which circulations and green elements are provided. As a result, the semi-underground level will become a lively, green space.
Various blocks of buildings will be grouped around this square with a diversity of residential functions: semi-detached houses, single-family residences and multi-family residences, to appeal to a wide target audience.
At the head of the site, Watermolenstraat, a smaller square will be built, where a principal building will be erected. This building will contain community-supporting facilities such as a daycare centre, an SME zone and a multi-purpose hall.
The various building blocks and the collective space are designed as a single entity which will exhibit a strong relationship to the surrounding area, although each building block will have its own identity.
The project provides for various measures with regard to sustainable mobility: a low-traffic site with crossings for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as car-sharing facilities, charge points for electric vehicles, etc.
