Masterplan “Heinrich Robert” Coal Mine
De Zwarte Hond is collaborating with the Urban Catalyst bureau of Berlin on the master plan for the former “Heinrich Robert” coal mine in Hamm, Germany. This mine, one of the last active coal mines in the Ruhr Area, was closed in 2010. Together with local citizens, a new designated use is being developed for the seventy hectare abandoned site, the historical buildings, and the former residential areas associated with the mine.
The monumental buildings in the centre of the area – with the striking Hammerkopfturm tower as a landmark – form the starting point for the transformation. A new neighbourhood, rich in culture and creativity, will be developed here. The “black gold” will make way for new, long-term forms of culture, coexistence and collaboration.
