Zilverkwartier – Antwerpen
In recent months various projects we had worked on were awarded prizes and nominations.
The Greater New Orleans Urban Water Plan received an Honor Award Masterplanning/Urban Design from AIA New Orleans. The same project received also the APA Louisiana State Planning Award.
The design for IJburg was nominated for the Twelfth Veronica Rudge Green Prize in Urban Design of the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
The town of Lokeren commissioned our practice to draw up a Masterplan for the station area. The commission was granted together with the follow-up funding from the Flemish Government. The key to improving the quality of the station’s surroundings is addressing the parking pressure and reorganising the traffic structure. We work together with Carin Jannink Landschap en Stedenbouw and Transport and Mobility Leuven on this assignment.
At the end of June this year Palmbout Urban Landscapes took part in the Dutch Dialogues in Virginia. This region is one of the most flood-prone coastal areas in the United States. In conjunction with local and Dutch administrators, engineers and designers, we worked during a several-day workshop on design proposals for Hampton Roads on the Chesapeake Bay. Jaap van den Bout and Sabien Thomaes co-developed proposals for the improvement of the coast of Norfolk and the banks of the New Market Creek. How can the threat of flooding be harnessed effectively for spatial opportunities for the hinterland? The final presentation was very well received and provided a masterly example of designing across all scales and professional domains!
On 20 July this year the jury chose our team as the winner of the competition and entrusted us with the task of drawing up a Masterplan for the Slachthuis site, Lobroekdok and Noordschippersdok in Antwerp. The area is located between Park Spoor Noord and the Antwerp Ring Road, bordering directly on the compact residential neighbourhood Den Dam. Commissioned by AG VESPA and Land Invest group, our practice will gladly set to work on this wonderful transformation assignment in the next months. The jury praised in particular the clear spatial structure that will give this fragmented district a future-proof basis. In close consultation with the neighbourhood, the design will be worked out in more detail to create a robust urban residential area. Our team also includes Feddes-Olthoff landscape architects and Goudappel Coffeng.
