Buda Beach is the result of diverting the river Leie and extending the south embankment at the tip of the island of Buda, at the edge of the historic centre of the city of Kortrijk.
Unlike the continuity envisaged for the north embankment, the south bank is seen as a series of episodes with different formal and functional characteristics to serve the adjoining urban fabric.
Buda Beach is designed as a landscaped leisure area, in keeping with the interventions in Koning Albertpark, that will provide a springboard for the footbridge linking the two sides of the river and transform into a riverside beach in the summer with the construction of a temporary sandbank.
It is laid out as an undulating area, with great green slopes down from IJzerkaai to the riverbank. Tamped paths of dolomite sand run between them, linking the urban axes on the island to the riverbanks and a large recreation area.
