Blue Boulevard is the conversion of a former industrial district in the city of Hasselt, Belgium. The design takes into account the neighborhood's history and character with a few new features like housing, office, and mixed use areas. With the new masterplan, we wish not only to establish a new urban housing quarter in Hasselt but also to emphasize and strengthen the existing qualities of the site. A masterplan which could become a natural implementation and answer to the goals and urban strategies set out by the city.
