KCAP is pleased to welcome you at Transformatieplein, Provada 2017

KCAP is known for the development of sustainable urban living environments with buildings and public spaces that enliven and renew the city. In our concepts we combine our expertise of architecture, urbanism and landscape to create social and spatial cohesion. Concepts that, furthermore, offer the necessary flexibility to adapt to individual needs of the users and new societal developments.

Striking in KCAP’s approach is the addition of quality to the living environments in the city. By programming the buildings in the right way, they are connected on ground level to their surroundings. The WELL principle can be found in our projects – facilities such as sport and green spaces are close by and let inhabitants and users experience the building and its surrounding as healthy and pleasant. In the concepts that we develop, we combine new forms for living and working, cultures, sustainability and infrastructure with the social aspects for today’s and future generations.

10:15: Licht Verdicht

Developer AM organises together with BNA a session about ‘Licht Verdicht’, a design study initiated by the municipality of Rotterdam that examines the possibilities of roof top extensions to existing buildings in Rotterdam. KCAP presents its results for the densification study for the research location ‘GGD’. Together with IMd, Fakton and architectural historian Wijnand Galema, KCAP has given an impetus to this site, situated in close proximity of the city centre on one side and the Erasmus bridge on the other. The team proposes a sustainable, future oriented and phased transformation that revives the existing location.
