Inspiration Book Sustainable Overschie

Project > Quickscan of potential development options for urban redevelopment

Overschie is a neighborhood in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, with unique properties:

  • surrounded by highways and an airport
  • environmentally compromised
  • Public health challenges
  • a village within the city
  • high social capital

Social housing organization Woonstad and the city council of Overschie want to make this neighborhood more sustainable, but where do they start? To answer this question we did a quickscan of the neighborhood to find its opportunities and made a custom inspiration book filled with possibilities to work towards a sustainable city district. Read below for more info, and of course, download the book!

With this inspiration book the various parties in the neighborhood can gain quick and easy insight into the possibilities that work for the neighborhood and how they work together.

“The book has been received really well and it’s really making people move.” – Gerben in 't Hout, Program Manager at Woonstad.
