Welcome to Fabulous Hoofdstraat

invited competition, March 2007

Landgraaf defines itself along a spine. This spine was neither planed nor ever longing for being something more than a road that connects the houses and villages along it. 25 years ago three villages along this spine united to form the newly defined town Landgraf. Since then the spine took on a new role and became somehow the town itself.
The study “Welcome to Fabulous Hoofdstraat” unravels the true nature of the spine and finds its utmost economic uniqueness by walking from door to door.
