22/09/14 - The counsel of Leeuwarden gives their concent for the urban development plan of the Potmarge

The urban development plan with architectural guidelines based on the Potmargevision from 2007 has been presented to the councel. It concerns a plan focused on care, in which both inpatient as outpatient housing will be realized. In our proposal the footprint of the existing building area (greenhouse complex Smeding and care centre Parkhove) will be reduced for the benefit of a more open and greener character. In addition the area will be opened up for public use by removing the current fences. VNL Architects has been commissioned by the Palet foundation, for the design of the various buildings.
