Restructuring of Bos en Lommerplein
Bos en Lommerplein was redeveloped as part of the large-scale restructuring of the centre of Bos en Lommer district. This restructuring was designed to give the district a new heart and provide solutions for the physical, social and economic problems in the area. The new heart of Bos en Lommer comprises a new shopping centre around a market square where various functions are located. Above the shops are dwellings and offices.
The new development links in with the urbanistic structure of 1935, which consists of row housing by Van Eesteren in Plan West. The market square, a central meeting place, formally terminates the axis from Mercatorplein.
The raised market square, which forms the roof of the parking garage situated underneath, is surrounded by a plinth of shops. Above, on the west side, are offices, which function as a noise barrier against the A10. On the east side is housing.
