At the North side of the central railway station in Arnhem a narrow, long stretched open plot divides two vastly different environments. On the South side the city’s transport hub with its adjacent business district bustles. The symphony of trains whizzing past and travelers making their way is inexhaustible, while at the North side of the station majestical mansion houses breathe tranquility. Here, the rhythm of daily life is more gentle, with the sound of solid wooden portals falling into their locks and the tender rustle of leaves on monumental trees. This project deals with the design of a multifunctional building on this very plot, within this diverse setting.
