Projects by Category
Planning and projects consist of various levels. The projects below are described by category.

•    Master plan/Vision
In the master plan (plan for medium term), not only the spatial framework is described but also economic principles. It often happens that a master plan is created based on an another urban planning tool, for example an urban plan.  
•    Urban planning
Here various spatial frameworks are drawn such as: urban structure (division) and guidelines for the edges of the location, the height of the buildings, public spaces, green, buildings, public buildings and skyscrapers. The spatial framework has a slightly more detailed level than the master plan.

•    Urban constraints
This product is usually drawn up for planning as an "object", such as building, bridge, etc. Before the project is actually developed, the constraints are drawn up (often referred to as a program of requirements). These constraints act as a "contract" which all developing parties have to keep to.

•    Spatial support
Is required when you are making a change in the prevailing zoning. Before starting the procedure, the spatial argument should be established, why it changed. In spatial planning support, the environmental, ecological and archaeological issues have to be described. This describes the effect of the plan (the change) on the environment.

•    Building plan guidance
Building plan guidance is given based on previous planning conditions or any other urban framework. The design is examined based on the context. If the design is not consistent with the framework then advice will be given on how to make it better/different so it can fit within the framework well. Supervisor belongs to  building plan guidance. An example is: several architects/designers work for an area where a supervisor is chosen as the person who is responsible for the total /integral environmental quality.

•    Subdivision plan
An urban product on a small scale level (1:1000 / 1:2000). It is an elaboration of an urban design / urban planning. The subdivision plan is drawn up based on the spatial context within the urban plan (for example: through a theme, appearance, etc.) The number of homes, the distribution of lots, green areas and water features for example are defined here.

•    Furnishing plan
A furnishing plan is an outdoor design/public space. ANL, limits itself to squares (mostly urban) and street sections in relation to urban structure.

•    Mass study
It is part of a design where the shape (width and height, appearance/ambience) of the buildings/ mass is still to be defined. A mass study is often used as a tool to get an idea. It is an interesting design tool.

•    Other projects
All (related) urban products /activities that not included in those products above.
For example: development paragraphs, company profiles etc.
