In the centre of Meerrijk, a Vinex-district in Eindhoven, a typical airplane hangar plus several other buildings, form a valuable piece of industrial heritage which keep the memory of the former Welschap airport alive. Redevelopment plus expansion into a complex for recreational and educational functions has transformed the hangar into a vital cultural centre for the district.

A balcony in the hangar, a sunken sports hall visible from the entrance patio, bridges that cross the patio, a sunken garden, a raised play ground and an amphitheatre in the entrance hall of the Brede school, these are the essential ingredients for a clear, rationally structured yet lively and unique complex.
