Bus Station Hoofddorp by NIO architecten
At the beginning of the year 2003 a bus station was built on the forecourt of Hoofddorp’s Spaarne Hospital. This facilities block is located in the middle of a square and is a public area in the form of an island that serves as a junction for the local bus service. The design of this kind of building is generally neutral, but here the aim was to create a strong, individual image that was less austere and generic.

Retail Park Roermond
The architects office set themselves an architectural task by making something with a modular and therefore efficient building system which is specific and thus unique. Where modular systems usually result in all too predictable shapes, the design studio managed, within the regime of recurring façade elements, to put up a system of façade openings with such variation that a seemingly much bigger variety of windows, shop windows and entrance doors can be made.

Pijnacker tunnel intervention
On the walls and ceilings of the Pijnacker tunnel a strange imprint is visible. A big, whimsical and brightly coloured imprint. Compared to the furthermore generic tunnel the thing seems to have loomed up out of nothing. The thing is all the more strange because the rest – the other concrete walls, the asphalt, the paving stones, the fencing, the illumination lines that are at right angles with the road and the bicycle lane/footpath – looks quite normal.
