a new type of civic space to the harbour district and city of Deventer


The head of the harbour area in Deventer is the start of a gradual transformation of the area. Due to the specific placement of residential buildings with public functions in the ground floor a lively square at the water arises.

As the square can be closed off it can temporarily be used for semi-public or private purposes next to normal public activities. A network of existing and new bridges provides a continuous access to the apartments and parking. 

The proposal includes various scenarios for special programming of Siloplein.
