Drieburcht sports complex open for public
On Saturday December 21st, the first day of the holiday season, the brand new Drieburcht sports complex opens for public!
The new building was designed by VenhoevenCS. It has three pools, a sportshall, fitness centre and school care. The atmosphere in the building can be regarded as ‘urban theatre’. From the sports hall on the top floor one has a view on the competition pool ten meters below; all the different functions are connected by these kind of spectacular sight lines.
Belgian artist Jean Luc Moerman has applied artwork Hybrid Skin to the facade and in several parts of the interior. Hybrid skind is inspired by muscles, movement and freedom, and refers to the function of the new sports complex; a place of sports, encounter and recreation.
The first comments of the test team on the new Drieburcht are very positive: ‘Drieburcht is a building that has something for everyone, it’s a superb sports accommodation, it has great high tech features and it just looks fantastic!’

VenhoevenCS designs new Station of Alkmaar
ProRail has awarded the contract for the design and construction of a new station of Alkmaar to Strukton and VenhoevenCS architecture + urbanism. The team produced the most appropriate response in a Design & Build proposal for the development of the new station of Alkmaar. ProRail values the urban integration of the plan, which contributes to the maximum enhancement of the station area and public space around the station.
The municipality of Alkmaar is working in conjunction with NS and ProRail on the development of the station area, seeking to create an accessible reception area of the city. The entire station area is being redeveloped into a new, attractive and desirable public space. The vision of the winning team presents a compact and well-organised new station, that, with forecourt and reception areas, is a logical and natural connection of the station to the city.
