The planning area covers the land of the former Tienen Provincial Youth Residential Centre (PIT), and the objective was to develop a sustainable new residential area. In close consultation with B- architecten, a zoning plan, layout plan, and a visual quality plan were all drawn up. The new area is made up of a large range of homes, from free-standing homes with ground-floor access to apartments. There are a total of six residential zones around the centrally located park, each with their own atmosphere and customized housing typology.

OMGEVING was responsible for the design and construction of the public spaces in the area. An extant athletics track is in the middle of the area, which is considered to be a park space with a pronounced open character. The course is being renovated and the grass field in its centre is to be opened up as a common area. The northern side of the athletics track connects to the public park located between the PIT building and the residential strips. Eastwards of the athletics track, the park spills over into a green buffer zone, which is being laid out in a whimsical cascade-like formation as a pleasant area for gentle recreation.
