2015 – Landscaping mainroad Poortdreef Almere

Gert BreugemNews


The Poortdreef is one of Almere’s eastern mainroads connecting district Almere Poort and the waterfront development of Dune with the highway A6. Since the district is almost reaching the final stage of development, it is the suitable time to start with the landscaping of the technical road.
The vision with implementable tools aims to establish a characteristic that strongly interacts with the existing landscape of forests and dunes. This resulted in a road with different regimes of plants and trees. Furthermore the vision deliver design tools for the eastern development, in terms of space and building typologies and landmarks. The result is a design book with guidelines for the survey plan and design tools for the projectteam who is in charge to do the urban design of the eastern zone.
