The new layout of the Katteberg/Regina Mundi site is being defined by a couple of guiding principles. The area becomes easily accessible by optimizing its relief. The urban development is concentrated within 3 strategically chosen zones with flexible urban guidelines. Spreading programmatic growth guarantees assimilation with the immediate surroudings on the one hand, and an assured programmatic identy on the other hand. These guidelines define a development strategy that pragmatically reconciles with a yet unknown growth process and inherits enough flexibility to legitimize sudden opportunities and ad hoc decison making.
