Het Verspreide Paleis

On Friday February 26th we presented the final results of our vision "Het Verspreide Paleis" for the city center of Geleen, following the initiative of BNSP and NVTL: "De woonwijk als noviteit".


Our final presentation can be seen HERE
Our 5 m2 scale model of our "Diffused Palace" is currently exposed inside one of the empty shops in Geleen.

Our team New Urban Networks was selected as finalist team to help envisioning the future of Geleen. Our urban design proposal has been awarded with the commission to suggest a strategy to revitalise its historical centre which is currently shrinking under the change of economy and reduction of work opportunities. We believe that where there is space and history there is also abundance and quality. Skilled workers cans be attracted from the nearby Chemelot company campus to live in the renovated city centre which we consider like an outdoor palace for all: "Het Verspreide Paleis” (the diffused palace).

winner of the selection for the new concept of the city center of Geleen, launched by the municipality of Sittard-Geleen, BNSP, NVTL
