Ground Floor Plan

A key project in the heart of the Belgian city of Roeselare is the renewal of the inner-city nucleus formed by Noordstraat, Ooststraat and Henri Horriestraat.

The city centre will be structurally strengthened by enlarging a modern centre of knowledge and learning, developing additional commercial premises and building new homes. The renewal project is situated right in the centre of the city. It is an integral part of the main shopping precinct that stretches between the Saint Michael Church and the Grote Markt (market square) on the one hand and the railway station on the other.

The 'knowledge centre' project is situated on the former site of the Bank of Roeselare in the heart of the city. The site will become a new multifunctional inner-city area with private and public functions including everything from housing, homes for senior citizens, shops, offices and exhibition areas to a knowledge centre with a library. The knowledge centre is going to be an open house, a public information forum and meeting place for people of all ages.

This new node of functions in the city will be built around a pedestrian shopping street with a public square. The site connects directly with the existing shopping streets and the Grote Markt, the market square.

The project’s multifunctional embodiment and high-quality architecture will enhance the liveability of Roeselare’s nucleus.
