Masterplan ZORRO Mechelen
By Binst Architects and OMG is a masterplan put up for ex Comet Site located along de Vesten in Mechelen. The strategic location of the site along the ‘Leuvense Vaart’ between Center and Vrijbroekpark offers a lot of potential for an attractive car-restricted residential area. In consultation with the city of Mechelen is a balanced program of 40,000 m² determined for a sustainable residential area with great attention to existing and new green structures, good traffic access and sufficient differentiation in residential typologies. In the district are in addition to 46 land-based houses also 216 apartments, 52 assistance flats and amenities like day-care center, convenience store, horeca and service centre included. Binst Architects has a BKP put up in which the architectural guidelines of the plan be clarified. Four architects will be known to shape the district between 2018-2026, including Binst Architects.
