From an abandoned and anonymous office building to a vibrant multi-tenant complex. That’s De Burgemeester, a commercial property in Hoofddorp renovated by Studioninedots and opened on 5 November 2013. The secret of the transformation? A vertical lobby featuring an open staircase where people meet face to face, a space that brings people together both literally and figuratively.

For the renovation of a dated brick pumping station in the Netherlands, the Dutch architectural firm derksen|windt architecten added a semi-transparent and eye-catching layer to the building. The perforated aluminium façade creates an amalgamation of the building and the adjacent square. Two separate worlds become one where the surroundings and the pumping station acquire a contemporary and attractive character.

ProRail, responsible for the railway network in the Netherlands, together with the so called spoorbouwmeester Koen van Velsen (‘the national supervisor for railway architecture’) started a campaign to make waiting more comfortable: Prettig Wachten.
Travelers experience waiting on a station as much longer then waiting within a vehicle. Surveys have indicated that waiting time is experienced as 3 times longer than it actually is. In this respect especially small and medium sized stations proof a big challenge. These smaller stations are usually unmanned, desolate, often creating a sense un-safety. What can we do to improve them?
