Zeeland, Centre



2020-09-11, Zeeland, Centre

During the in 2019 completed redevelopment in the North Brabant village of Zeeland, Kerkstraat was renewed as the main axis through the center. The adjacent parking areas around the local supermarkets, shops and the town hall have also been redeveloped. The paving has been renewed, areas are better connected to one another and new trees have been planted. To protect these newly planted trees from traffic and the stalls of the weekly market, cast iron tree grids have been used. Because the trees will continue to grow considerably over the years, there was a need for sufficient space for the trunk of the trees. The square tree grate from ANAE, model Amer, has a removable inner ring. This allows the planting hole to be enlarged as soon as necessary and the tree grate grows with the tree.



Baarn, Town center



2020-08-20, Baarn, Town center

Baarn is a town with a long and rich history, dating back to the Stone Age. In the Middle Ages, Baarn played an important role and there were several castles to defend the area. In the Golden Age this ensured Baarn as an attractive village for successful merchants and other wealthy people from Amsterdam. This resulted in an enormous expansion of the number of country estates around Baarn, including Soestdijk Palace which later became a royal residence. In order to emphasize and reinforce the history and historic appearance of the town, the most recent redesign opted for street furniture with a classic appearance. Earlier we showed you one of the planters, this time we show you the design of the benches. Marlies van Diest designed these benches and ANAE manufactured them from wooden beams mounted on a metal frame with a laser-cut filigree motif. By manufacturing with a laser cutter, the finish of the benches is very clean but by executing the filigree motif in several layers of steel it still looks very classic.



Valkenburg, De Leeuw



2020-07-02, Valkenburg, De Leeuw

Since the end of the 19th century, the building of the former gunpowder factory in the South Limburg town of Valkenburg has been in use as a beer brewery. Most people will know this brewery as De Leeuw, the name that the company has been using since 1921. The original watermill of the powder factory contributed to De Leeuw’s production process until 2006, when all brewing activities were relocated to Belgium. The former factory building and the surrounding grounds have now been upgraded into a recreation park for residents and tourists. ANAE supplied the tree grids for this project, model Zenne, in three different sizes. These tree grids are made of Corten steel, which is known for its orange-brown oxide color.



Oud-Heverlee, Village centre



2020-03-27, Oud-Heverlee, Village centre

South of the Belgian city of Leuven is a large wooded area, which is the remnant of the ancient Charcoal Forest. In the west of this beautiful green environment is the village of Oud-Heverlee, where the center has recently been renovated. The protected townscape was strengthened and upgraded by paving the asphalted Dorpsstraat with classic-looking cobblestones. The sidewalk was widened and also paved, with new trees planted along the road. The square tree grates, model Stora, are supplied by ANAE, as well as the tree guards which are custom made for this project. Further down the Dorpsstraat, a tree with a tree bench has been placed in memory of a young deceased resident of Oud-Heverlee. ANAE supplied this tree bench, of the model Lavier with a diameter of 3 meters, together with tree grid Vida and a custom made tree guard.
