In addition, the area development focuses on the design of the public space, attractive new walking and cycling routes will be created and innovative mobility concepts will be introduced. The Waldorpstraat viaduct will be demolished and a new lively urban street will be realised instead.
Five towers around the Hollands Spoor station will accommodate the program and strengthen the skyline of The Hague. The shifted position of the volumes creates a varied streetscape with lively ground floor areas. The staggered facades with balconies and terraces give a feeling of transparency. In this way, the buildings are based on the human scale, despite the high density. On the Laakhaven’s side of Hollands Spoor station, a beautiful city entrance is created that connects both sides of the railway. This also includes a lively and functionally redesigned station square.
