The Maes en Boereboomplein: Community House
The Maes en Boereboomplein is a square situated in the centre of Heist, a submunicipality of Knokke-Heist, the well-known resort on the Belgian coast. An open market is held there every Tuesday morning. On the edge of the square are the old town hall and ‘Ravelingen’, a multifunctional meeting place.
The project of JAKOB + MACFARLANE upgrades this location to a new, fully fledged meeting place for residents, second home owners and tourists alike. To that end, public functions, commercial activities, residential accommodation, recreation and public domain are linked into one integrated whole.
