A CHURCH AT THE CROSSROAD OF REGIONAL ROADS CHARACTERIZES THE CENTRE OF WESTKERKE, A SMALL MUNICIPALITY IN BELGIUM, WEST-FLANDERS.  RIBBONS OF BUILDINGS DELINEATE LARGE BLOCKS, THE OPEN SPACE BEHIND THE HOUSES IS NOT VISIBLE NOR ACCESSIBLE. THE FOUR NEW CLUSTERS ARE SATELLITES AROUND THE CENTRAL HOUSES, EACH OF THEM IS A GATEWAY TO THE PARK, ACCESSIBLE FOR CYCLISTS AND PEDESTRIANS. BY A GAME OF ROOF SURFACES, THE NEW HOMES ARE LINKED TO BOTH SIDES OF THE EXISTING BUILDINGS, AND ALL THE NEW HOMES HAVE THEIR OWN INDIVIDUAL ROOF. A LARGE CARPORT CAN BE REACHED THROUGH AN UNDERPASS IN THE STREET AND MAKES A LINK TO THE OTHER CLUSTER.
