This plan is based on exploiting the presence of the water and the valuable industrial heritage. To achieve this, no new buildings are proposed initially, on the contrary, space is created so that both elements become visible in the urban fabric. Gradually, at right angles to the canal, a broad avenue is established along which developments can take place. New development along the water is used to give weight to the rehabilitation of Havenkwartier. This takes the form of a relatively large-scale, square, multi-functional building in the water. There are more small-scale construction volumes along the water. The usage is flexible and occupants can extend them.
