The Tourist Office for Flanders has selected Stijlgroep landscape and urban design to work together with Studiebureau Plantec NV for the design, work preparations and supervision of the construction of ‘De Grasduinen’ recreational park in the coastal municipality of Bredene.
The park has a surface area of approximately eight hectares and is centrally located in a recreational zone with accommodations. The assignment calls for the creation of a green enclave with an identity of its own to complement the existing area. This enclave is intended for recreational facilities, such as walking and mountain-biking trails, a sunbathing area, public sports fields, playgrounds and a fishing pond. Our plan distinguishes itself by its unconventional layout with regard to design, scale and relief. The design began with a vision that led to the preliminary design. We are presently working on the implementation plan and its technical details. The tasks assigned to Stijlgroep and Plantec also include design execution. Works are expected to be finished in the year 2011.
