Van Steenis outdoor area

From parking to green recreational area
The outdoor area of the Van Steenis Building (Faculty of Archaeology) went green!


The plan involved removing a substantial part of the concrete cover which was previously used for car and bicycle parking. The area was transformed in two phases: in 2019, some of the bicycle parking spots were refurbished and expanded. The area was then planted with trees and plants on the south side, with partial paving wherever possible.
