The ‘Mei­jepark’ and the ‘Zuid­hoek’ are both part of the small-​scale land­scape sur­round­ing the lakes around Nieuwkoop. A sig­nif­i­cant effort is made to con­nect the new plan with the beau­ti­ful sur­round­ings.
This is expressed in the use of local trees and plants and cre­at­ing views through the plan to the sur­round­ing area. With the design of the lots is sought to cre­ate an infor­mal envi­ron­ment that is con­sis­tent with the atmos­phere in ‘Zuidhoek’.

Part of this strat­egy is that dwellings of dif­fer­ent types are mixed in the plan. The short streets and dif­fer­ent angles in the street pat­tern also under­line the infor­mal setup. The design for the ‘Mei­jepark’ and the ‘Zuid­hoek’ is strongly based on the exist­ing base of the under­ly­ing peat land­scape, also the exist­ing water struc­ture is respected in the new plan.

The form and qual­ity of archi­tec­ture in this plan plays an impor­tant role in the expe­ri­ence of space. Spa­tial qual­ity adds to the value of the area for res­i­dents, users and passers-​by. In a plan in which more than half of the homes will be devel­oped pri­vately, the qual­ity mon­i­tor­ing is very impor­tant. We aim towards a cohe­sive, con­tem­po­rary image with a cer­tain indi­vid­u­al­ity. The con­sis­tency is achieved by devel­op­ing themes which appear in all homes but in dif­fer­ent forms. The con­tem­po­rane­ity is achieved by apply­ing mod­ern mate­ri­als and tech­niques, a con­tem­po­rary for­mal lan­guage and by the strong inte­gra­tion of sus­tain­abil­ity, which has impli­ca­tions for the archi­tec­ture. The indi­vid­u­al­ity is achieved by com­bin­ing the location-​based fea­tures of liv­ing by the Lake, nature, the vil­lage atmos­phere and the hol­i­day feeling.
