In Schiecycle a clear distinction is made between Koemarkt and the VROM site. Koemarkt forms the entrance to the historical city centre. By continuing the trees and the materialisation of Broersvest over Koemarkt, a renewed connection is created. All the kiosks on the square are assembled in a new pavilion adjacent to the water. The VROM site forms the entrance point to the Nieuw-Mathenesse industrial estate. An industrial campus is proposed here that can develop round a central 'Fablab'. Residential/business units can also be built on the site in a later phase. All the buildings are made from locally-recycled materials such as cargo containers and old greenhouses.
