The hanging gardens of Schijndel

The new lining

In keeping with the desire to be greener and less petrified, the interior patio features lush foliage inspired by the hanging gardens of Babylon. Here, a wide staircase leads to a new passage to the market as an informal place to stay. This green oasis continues into a pocket park surrounding the old town hall.

Strength of the current building

The transformation of the former town hall of Schijndel gives the center a new impulse. By using the strength of the current skin, the Bossche School style is being appreciated. Within this shell, 16 apartments are being realized that open up to a future passage.
