A mini-village in Boom

CONIX RDBM Architects as Architects

Park View is a new urban project based in a former clay quarry in Boom. It is a residential project, complete with a local supermarket and apartments. The semi-public space, as well as the various buildings, were designed together in a coherent,
defined environment, around a town square that has an identity of its own. The site will provide opportunity for a mix of pursuits, with work, living and socialising in a green environment the central objectives. The project includes 75 residential units in a variety of sizes and styles. In the clay quarry, a new factory area is foreseen, with broad, loft-like apartments around a central space. The supermarket on the ground floor gives a large-scale feel. The site will also be getting connections to the new ring road. An urban villa with luxury apartments, free-standing and terraced will be built adjacent to the park. The park runs through to the site.
A variety of materials have been used to support the different atmosphere and scales without breaking from the desired community identity of the specific sub-area. The largest inspiration? Clay. Sustainability is also an important factor across the whole site. It is present in all aspects of the design. CLT—Cross Laminated Timber—has been used for dressing the largely classic cement construction above the parking area. Thanks to careful planning and design, the residences on the site are almost energy neutral.
