Diezerpoort Zwolle

Neighbourhood appreciation

For a long time Diezerpoort was considered a problem area. Fortunately that didn't stick! Because the area is full of qualities that have been underutilized. The development plan focuses on urban acupuncture and five small-scale projects that strengthen the social, economic and spatial structure of the district.

 

The Dieze East neighbourhood with its ‘light, air and space’ plot structure and small homes is not demolished, but restored. Because many young people and starters have expressed an interest in an authentic fifties apartment a stone’s throw from the inner city.
