Schiehaven Noord

masterplan for a new housing district

Schiehaven Noord is a new urban plan for a new housing district, developed together with B+B Urbanism and Landscape architecture and the municipality of Rotterdam. The project area is the final step in the development of the former port area around the Schiehaven. It will provide a sustainable and high-quality living environment with a rich mix of housing typologies and facilities, strongly anchored in the public domain and connected to the surrounding residential areas. The urban plan introduces a wide range of public spaces: a green river promenade, an urban sports square, spacious publicly accessible gardens as well as intimate collective courtyards for the residents. All parking facilities will be concentrated on the edges of the neighborhood, creating a car-free living environment which stimulates the further appropriation of the public space by residents and visitors.
