De Opmaat, an extended school located where a meadow landscape meets the outskirts of Arnhem, houses a primary school, a nursery, a playgroup and a gym. The building has sloping roofs, staggered in relation to one another, with stairways, tribune steps, rooflights and roof vegetation. The form fits in with the surrounding area. Thanks to the green on the roofs, the view of the landscape from the houses on the other side remains intact. The glazed frontage on the north side refers to the nearby glasshouses.

A former wasteland in the centre of Arnhem (Netherlands) is transformed to an iconic park: A flourishing heather landscape with a huge PartyAardvark (an artwork by Florentijn Hofman) lying amidst of it. Together with office D.T.O. we took the initiative to transform this desolate area – due to the economic crisis – to a patch of spectaculair nature in the city. The Bartok Park is a symbol for Arnhem: a city that is uniquely situated on the edge of the Natural Park the Veluwe, but doesn’t seem to take much pride in this fact. The vegetation is transplanted from that Natural Park into the city centre: we brought nature literally to the city.

The new €37.5m (£27.6m) Transfer Terminal at Arnhem Central Station in the Netherlands has now completed.
The station is the result of an ambitious 20-year project – masterplanned by UNStudio – to redevelop the wider station area; the largest post-war development in Arnhem. Backed by the Dutch government, this transfer hub rewrites the rulebook on train stations and is the most complex of its type in Europe. The station will become the new ‘front door’ of the city, embracing the spirit of travel, and is expected to establish Arnhem as an important node between Germany, the Netherlands and Belgium. The new terminal houses commercial areas, and a conference centre and provides links to the nearby office plaza, city centre, underground parking garage and the Park Sonsbeek. The area around the station will become a place in of itself, with 160,000m2 of offices, shops and a cinema complex.

ArtA will be an exciting mixture of public functions: a ‘sandwich’ of cinema, square, museum and park: Art House,Art Square, Art Show, Art Park.
By pushing this programmatic sandwich down on one side the roof becomes accessible. At the same time the building opens up to the river. An easily accessible roof landscape emerges draped over vibrant city life: ‘urban moraine’.

Villa DVT is a detached house on the outskirt of Arnhem in the suburb Schuytgraaf. The client expressed a desire for a unique and modern home and an interior with a ‘loft-quality’. This resulted in an explicit design with graphic lines and minimalistic details.
