Talentencampus/Sibeliuspark Oss [NL]

'Talentencampus/Sibeliuspark' Oss is a combined development of two projects. The task requires an integral regional vision with different functional programs and planning schemes. The masterplan for the city campus with park, educational buildings, sports facilities, education related businesses and homes defines spatial principles which will continuously be optimised within a process of developing the program and quality.

The concept provides for a city campus with an elongated open space as the principal carrier of identity, along which thematic clusters with a mix of different functions are organised and linked with each other. The principle of clustering is continued through to the architectural level with a flexible mix of programs within the buildings. The residential units in Sibeliuspark are clustered as islands in the elevated green.

Oss 'Talentencampus' is a project that establishes new connections between education, sports and business. A sports ground forms the heart of the area. The program for Talentencampus comprises a total of 37.200 m2 of which 13.400 m2 will be developed for social functions and 23.800 m2 for commercial use.

'Sibeliuspark', currently not frequently used, will be transformed into an attractive, multifunctional and socially safe park with 260 integrated residential units. Talentencampus and Sibeliuspark form together a significant image at one of the main entrance routes to the city of Oss.
