Heerlijkheid Hoogvliet, Rotterdam

5.4Ha masterplan site for a 'Summer Village' and 'Hobby Park' in Hoogvliet on the outskirts of Rotterdam

The site is on the edge of a motorway and opposite one of the biggest oil refineries in the world.

After extensive consultation with the local community, a range of community facilities were finalised. Heerlijkheid (which roughly translates as ‘beautiful place’) houses an arthouse cinema; a café; a space dedicated to making models of cargo ships; an arboretum; a nature park; a small scaffold hut for teaching children how to make wattle-and-daub walls; and a large lake in the shape of a map of the Netherlands for birds and model boats, surrounded by barbecues.
