2013 – Masterplan De Laren, Almere Haven

Gert BreugemNews


Masterplan creation for a housing estate with facilities highly connected within the existing
landscape and green functions.
In making the urban plan for the Laren, the underlying landscape played an important role. Retention and activation of the landscape formed the basis for the location and distinctive quality of living and amenities. The plan is based on three spheres, which are connected together by an intricate system of footpaths. The largest part of the housing is constructed around a green area used for recreational purposes.
