Leerpark Dordrecht

Offering space to students, teachers, entrepreneurs and residents to flourish, the design for Leerpark Dordrecht envisioned a contemporary urban district.

Leerpark is a lively and small scale area that connects in a natural way to the surrounding neighbourhoods of Dordrecht. The heart of the new Leerpark was formed by a park with the atmosphere of a university campus. Here, students and residents can play, stroll and study. The 15-meter wide Leerpromenade borders the park and connects the public transportation stops with the school buildings. The Leerpromenade widens into the Da Vinci Square where there is space for restaurants and retail.

In the south of the park is a residential neighbourhood with room for living and working as well as a sculptural apartment building.
