27/​03/​2018 — Leeuwe­plaats will be a fine and sus­tain­able res­i­den­tial neigh­bor­hood with an Utrecht char­ac­ter close to the city­cen­ter on the Amsterdam-​Rijnkanaal. Munic­i­pal­ity Utrecht has selected the Leeuwe­plaats team for the devel­op­ment of 95 homes on build­ing site 6 in Leeuwest­eyn (Lei­d­sche Rijn).

The plan was real­ized in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ooms Bouw & Ontwik­kel­ing, Heren 5 archi­tects, FARO archi­tects, Stroot­man Land­scape Archi­tects, Merosch, Beumer Garantiemake­laars and VERO Visu­als.
Oppo­site poles in spheres con­tribute to the Utrecht char­ac­ter that we pur­sue in Leeuwe­plaats. An urban outer edge with stately homes on the avenue and care­fully designed ensem­bles on the green Oev­er­park. And in the heart of the plan is the inti­mate Leeuwe­plaats with a suc­ces­sion of alleys and places, each with its own atmos­phere cre­ated by dif­fer­ent inter­pre­ta­tions. The car is out of sight, but within reach in one of the two green park­ing courts. The urban design accents in the plan were per­formed with a nod to the Utrecht Art Deco.

Leeuwe­plaats is a rich plan. There is a wide vari­ety of hous­ing types suit­able for peo­ple with large and small schol­ar­ships, for patch­work fam­i­lies, three-​generation fam­i­lies and self-​employed peo­ple who want to work at home. All houses have a front porch and there are houses with porch, awning and bay win­dow, which opti­mally uti­lizes the ori­en­ta­tion and loca­tion of the houses.
Liv­ing in Leeuwe­plaats is also com­fort­able and sus­tain­able. The energy con­cept is based on the well-​known trias ener­get­ics: this means extra well insu­lated walls, floors and roofs and triple-​glazing is used every­where. Heat is recov­ered by means of a CO2-​controlled bal­anced ven­ti­la­tion sys­tem. And there is an indi­vid­ual heat pump for heat­ing and hot tap water with a col­lec­tive open-​source sys­tem. In short, with an EPC of –0.3 and a GPR score aver­ag­ing 8.9 a result to be proud of!
