On the outskirts of Rotterdam a new neighbourhood has been created combined with a large recreation lake, well connected to the city. A park, yacht harbour, a beach and the shopping area composes the relation between the lake with the housing, creating a special living environment. Beach-culture in the Dutch polder, 7 metres below sea level. Landscaping/urbanism as only the Dutch can. Arjen Knoester designed the urban plan and worked on the project as head urban planning / architecture supervisor for the City of Rotterdam.
