Tis inner area, situated near the center of Kruishoutem, is characterized by a wide sight at the church, the sloping landscape, the low surrounding buildings, diverse small passages and orchard remnants. All of witch are elements that recall Kruishoutem as a gate to the Vlaamse Ardennen. The masterplan is embedded around the existing landscape elements. The constructions are positioned to compose zones for collection of water, children playgrounds, gardens and squares for communal activities. There is one coherent story for the overall site, with specific characterization for each part. 75 houses will be provided within a “healthy spread” of different typologies. Housing for rent and for sale will be mixed. Clustering of the individual housing units on one hand leads to a clear readability of the site, on the other hand it reduces the building cost and increases the ecological character of the houses.
