Rinkkaai Mixed-Use Development in Ghent

Design: KCAP Architects & Planners, evr-Architecten and Omgeving

Location: Ghent, Belgium

KCAP, evr-Architecten and Omgeving win Masterplan Competition in Belgium

A new city quarter with more than 300 apartments, public and local commercial functions, public spaces and a new neighborhood park will develop along Fabiolalaan in Ghent, located close to the station Ghent-Sint-Pieter.

Rinkkaai Mixed-Use Development

For the realisation of this development, Ghent’s municipal city development company ‘sogent’ selected three candidate teams, all consisting of developers with their design teams and consultants, to create project proposals. The project RINKKAAI by developers’ group Alides / Nacarat / Cores Development has been chosen as winning scheme. This was announced on September 25th by sogent.

Rinkkaai Mixed-Use Development

The design team for architecture and public space of RINKKAAI is led by KCAP Architects&Planners (Rotterdam, NL), evr-Architecten (Ghent, BE) and Omgeving (Antwerp, BE). They are assisted by a group of partners and advisors with among others Establis, VK engineering, Saison Menu, Fris in het Landschap and Common Ground.

Rinkkaai Mixed-Use Development

RINKKAAI will become a new city district for a variety of users, an intergenerational neighborhood with a mix of housing typologies and facilities for young families with children, couples, co-housers and seniors with or without need for care.

Rinkkaai Mixed-Use Development

The design aims to create a new community that is connected with each other and to its surroundings. The site’s location along Fabiolalaan and close to the park Blaarmeersen offers a quiet green surrounding and establishes connections between the city and the park, between living and leisure and between the existing and the new neighborhood.

Rinkkaai Mixed-Use Development

The architectural concept provides a compact ensemble of six pavilions, each with their own identity but with a clear common DNA. Shape, position, height and material of the buildings correspond directly with the surroundings. The position and the staggering of the buildings create attractive green intermediate zones and allow for varied views from each apartment.

Rinkkaai Mixed-Use Development

The project will meet the ‘passive building’ and BEN (Bijna Energie Neutraal/almost energy neutral) standards through an innovative energy concept. But also social sustainability, sustainable project financing and participation and cooperation with the neighborhood contribute to the sustainability concept.
