At Noorderstrand, the boulevard along the beach diverges from the straight line and ends in a counterpart of the marina. It becomes a public square with a sculptural building, to symbolize this point of Nesselande. On the peninsulas and along the promenade, specific living environment concepts originate in a non-rational parcel plan, that constantly seeks a different relationship between the houses, the landscape and the water. Thus, each dwelling obtains its own specific position in the water landscaped habitat. A different approach to living, quite opposite to the rational urban lay-out of Nesselande, but what a striking preservation of the wild spirit of the surfers paradise.
Stijlgroep is responsible for the concept, landscape, urban design and preliminary design of the architecture.
