A number of interventions are proposed to improve Havenkwartier’s connection with the urban fabric of Assen. Existing infrastructure is utilised and barriers such as the railway and canal are given crossings. The entire industrial heritage disappears. Nine icon buildings serve to place Havenkwartier on the map. The remaining space is filled in with a more flexible development in the form of a four-floor building comprising a basic unit of six by ten metres. These units can be developed separately or combined resulting in a diversity of housing, offices, commercial spaces and catering in Havenkwartier.
