Reconstruction architecture: Design based research of Westouter

In the aftermath of the Labo S studies on reconstruction architecture in the front zone of ’14-18, and as a reaction to the ambition of the municipality of Westouter to create a spatial policy document for the town centre, Labo S in collaboration with MAAT-ontwerpers got assigned to put the framework, formulated in the previous studies, to the test.

The study emphasises on spatial and design-based research of potential developments in the centre of Westouter, in relation to the heritage value of the reconstruction architecture. The report aspires to stimulate and support the municipality in formulating a vision and proposed several development perspectives as well as guidelines to manage current projects, building applications and landscape interventions.
