The town centre of Landgraaf is getting an attractive new heart, offering a varied range of retail options, with apartments above the shops. A parking garage has been created underneath the building. Behind the shops is a courtyard with terrace houses that border the roof garden.

Intensive and extensive vegetation has been combined with pedestrian paving. The project was implemented in two phases and includes a unique transition between two different roof levels. The transition was constructed using water-permeable EPS blocks. The blocks have been stacked to form an embankment, on top of which a substrate has been laid that gives the entire structure a natural appearance.
