Stitching Over The Rail


When walking through Collegelands, pedestrian become the essence of the journey. The whole neighbourhood follows a human scale and becomes a main environmental attraction. A 10-minute walk takes you around the whole area with a smooth accessibility and a strong connectivity, as an extension of the best qualities of the city centre.

A mix of uses defines the area, the quiet neighbourhood with a safe attractive public space. The commercial area full of people with a diversity of ages and backgrounds. Coherence between the built, unbuilt and nature takes over the whole area.

The traces of the railway become an indistinguishable part of the public realm and the private life.
