Future concept Kijkduin

Beach resort of the future

For the area of Kijkduin, UNSense Design & Strategy is designing a vision how to transform the predominantly natural and recreational beach area into a 365-days-a-year surprising and attractive place to be.

Compared to the busy beach town of Scheveningen, Kijkduin is still a relatively quiet and small-scale predominantly natural landscape and recreational area. The coming years Kijkduin will undergo a metamorphosis towards becoming Nieuw Kijkduin. Between the beach and the protected dune area a new skyline will arise, featuring nine apartment blocks with retail, restaurants, bars and a fresh food market on ground floor level, creating a mix of nature, culture, sports, entertainment and a high level of living and service orientation.

Together with FRED Developers, the municipality of The Hague and the city district of Loosduinen, UNSense has explored the possibilities for Nieuw Kijkduin to accomplish its goal of becoming ‘the beach resort of the future’ in terms of innovation and sustainability and a test lab for pioneering technology.
