VenhoevenCS designs new Station of Alkmaar
19 December 2013
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.
