Description of the assignment

Freestone carried out a spatial-technical analysis of the patrimony, focusing on occupancy, use and functionality.

Approach Freestone

Freestone determined 6 function categories and 4 spatial zones. Spatial-technical scenarios were then examined and selected. Both the analysis and the scenarios were developed in participatory consultation, in the form of workshops with the users, the administration and the management.

Aanpak Freestone Kuurne

The scenarios resulted in recommendations on spatial-organisational improvements (higher occupancy), spatial clusters and centres of attraction in the municipality, multi-functional use of buildings, technical optimization of buildings, potential partnerships with third parties (ground lease, concessions), or selling/disposing of buildings.

The previously drawn up organisational "service model" (in collaboration with BDO) served as a basis for the recommendation on the spatial reorganization of the town hall and the "Sociaal Huis".
