Geer­park is a new neigh­bour­hood in Vli­j­men. The city, the cor­po­ra­tion, the province and the water­dis­trict have for­mu­lated high sus­tain­able ambi­tions to make Geer­park the most sus­tain­able neigh­bor­hood in the Nether­lands. The neigh­bor­hood will be all-​electric and all homes will be energy neu­tral. The plan belongs to one of the 13 ‘excel­lent area’s’ des­ig­nated by the ministry.

Geer­park is being devel­oped on the loca­tion of a for­mer seed busi­ness ‘Mom­mer­steeg’. The old Mom­mer­steeg office is mon­u­men­tal and will be rede­vel­oped and social cen­ter. The con­nec­tion between this cen­ter and the planned devel­op­ment is a high den­sity area that is being shaped by FARO.

The plan will have a cen­tral square, where all ser­vices will come together. Here is also the ren­o­vated Mom­mer­steeg build­ing and two build­ings for assisted liv­ing and small park­ing garages. The square is con­nected to the main slow mov­ing traf­fic artery in Geerpark.

The plan also con­forms to the imme­di­ate sur­round­ings of Geer­park. All build­ings will have pitched roofs, fac­ing south to accom­mo­date PV pan­els or solar col­lec­tors. To break up the monot­ony of this, some blocks will be turned despite of the fact that these will not have the opti­mum energy efficiency.

In ref­er­ence to the exist­ing agro-​industrial feel­ing, the build­ings will be designed as sturdy ‘‘res­i­den­tial barns’’ with plenty of room for sus­tain­able measures.
