La Facade in Den Bosch, Netherlands by Diederendirrix Architects

From an urban planning point of view, the east side of the square in the station district in Den Bosch lacked a clear boundary. diederendirrix designed a closed perimeter block for the location both to define the volume of the square and to gesture towards the station and the palace district which lies behind.
Architecturally, we searched for a contemporary, idiomatic connection with the historical aspects and the more formal architecture around the station. The square is given life and character through the use of an idiosyncratic facade pattern which combines scale, differentiation and detail.
