Badhoevedorp, Haarlemmermeer, Netherlands

Due to the relocation of the A9, a large stretch of land running through Badhoevedorp will be freed up for re-development. This required a re-envisioning of certain areas within Badhoevedorp.

The Strategic framework Quatrebrass sets out the planning guidelines for one such area, named Quatrebrass. The Quatrebrass area will include an expanded public park, new street lanes, development of the old A9 ribbon into a green connector throughout Badhoevedorp and the new residential areas. The Strategic framework does not only locate these new developments, but also prescribes their character and identity and how they should interconnect and connect to the existing surroundings. The Strategic framework will be used as planning regulation for the design and construction of this area by developers.
