Project overview
Following its Europan 3 win, S333 was commissioned to develop the urban principles for a mixed-use regeneration project at CiBoGa, a 14 ha post-industrial site on the edge of the city centre. Then in 1998, we were commissioned as architect for Schots 1 + 2, the first phase of the new development.

In this work, we addressed the following questions: How can context, nature and urban ecology become more instrumental in the re-evaluation, re-interpretation and re-organisation of dense, residential neighbourhoods within our cities?  How can the multi-layering of activities and landscape set up a viable alternative to the hermetic world of the traditional urban block?

S333’s research into housing typologies, local ecological conditions and alternative energy use has led to the proposals becoming a national pilot scheme and demonstration project for sustainable urban renewal in the Netherlands.
