Nijmegen - first prize
The Limos former army barracks site in Nijmegen opens itself before the city, and forms the link between the city and the extensive woodlands to the south of the city. The design is based on the landscape as the main factor for the site. The adjoining Mariënboom landscape park will be continued through the Limos site, as far as possible into the city. Now that the Limos site has been handed over to the city, an optimum relationship between city and the landscape has been created. The buildings will literally be in the middle of the green landscape; the landscape will continue among the buildings, and the woods fan out towards the city.
