Downtown Delft gets a new sight! Adjacent to the historical inner-city a modern borough arises, the new train station functions as joint. The railway that dissected the city for years, now runs underground; its track will transform into a new park.
A development from no-man’s-land to Delfsland: what would that look like?
The Van Leeuwenhoekpark is a park different from all other Delft parks. While at the same time, it is a true Delft park. A park with Delft DNA.
Historically inspired and innovative; diverse and pleasantly green-blue. A potential showcase of urban climate adaptation, an outdoor laboratory for climate proof novelties. A fine place to live and to visit.
Most defining is the extremely narrow shape of the Van Leeuwenhoekpark. This shape sides the park with a family of characteristic urban lines, like the Oude Delft canal. The challenge of this outspoken space is to look for landscape architectural solutions that create surprising places and a unique experience.
LANDLAB searches for the ingredients of the Delft DNA, climate adaptive opportunities and spatial possibilities. The ingredients translate into a series of building blocks that create a strong framework for a distinctive park with flexible programme.
