Stijlgroep participated in the whole process with stakeholders as the government, municipalities, provinces and regional water boards. In this way creating a strategy that allows a collaboration between the owners, and thus create a “ground bank” system that allows the necessary increase in scale through exchange in land. The biggest obstacle until then, the implantation of water management and ecology, was turned into the collective strength and identity in the heart of the pilot. The need for water and ecology is also offered through a “merchandise bank”. Therefore, instead of a financial impossibility, it turns into economic value and profit.
