The client about ‘MOOI lost op’

“The approach of ‘MOOI lost op’ was innovative in the way that they involved the neighbourhood in the plans for temporary use. This created a great support base among for the new functions the neighbours. The cooperation with ‘MOOI lost op’ went smoothly. They supplemented the municipality by considering the real estate in a conceptual, but especially, environment-conscious way.”
