What if architecture generates social fabric in the middle of an urban development patchwork 

CRUEBEKE 

name - [ˈkrœybekə]

The charme of a decades old, organically grown urban layout presents its unique challenges. How to unlock the potential of 'forgotten' patch of land while respecting the villages character and vistas?

 

Cruebeke is a 11.600 m² text book example of how 58 units of modern housing and urban development can contribute to the social fabric of a local community, rather than upsetting it. 

 

By making the previously non existing link between two main roads available for pedestrians and cyclists, in a green infused area that preserved the vista of the village church, Cruebeke solved a number of issues at once. 

To name one example: by alligning the underground parking with the contours of their parent building, the implementation of rainmater infiltration buffering wadis and healthy, natural growth of vegetation became a breeze.
