Hembrug

The collection of existing buildings

The former military site Hembrug, 42 hectares in size, with monumental buildings and landscape elements, will be transformed into a lively living and working environment. Within the design team we focus on the heritage on Hembrug, which consists of 62 buildings ranging from small – 7 sqm – to large – 4,000 sqm. This heritage will be redeveloped for works, art and housing or will be given a public function.

More Less

The concept is based on the reallocation of a variety of buildings. So not only the gems – the national monuments – but also the idiosyncratic buildings from the 1970s are given a second life. In this way a special sample is created, with architecture throughout the years. GROUP A does this in collaboration with ABC, LIFE MAKES SENS, Fakton Capital, MOOI solves, Stadkwadraat, marco.broekman, VenhoevenCS, and the municipality of Zaanstad.

The urban development plan – by marco.broekman – offers spaceĀ for a total of 180,000 sqm of program, with approximately 1000 homes, creative industry, schools, co-working, art & culture, offices and catering. By preserving the important historical buildings and landscape structures, the unique character of Hembrug will be preserved and strengthened.
