Maxwan creates new station forecourt for Zwolle

Boskalis Nederland, with Maxwan A+U and Kraaijvanger Architects, has won the Design & Construct tender for the city of Zwolle’s new station forecourt and underground bicycle parking area.

Maxwan developed the plan for the forecourt using a municipal design as a basis. The new forecourt will enable travellers to enter and exit the station swiftly and safely. A spacious layout, short routes, and a logical separation of pedestrians, cyclists and cars will ensure smooth traffic flow. The forecourt will get a whole new look: a reflecting pool with a skylight, planters with trees and bench edges, and atmospheric lighting will all help to transform this urban gateway into a pleasant place to be. The bicycle cellar’s three entrances will flow smoothly into the design of the exterior space, creating a seamless transition. 

The underground bicycle storage area was designed by Kraaijvanger. Click here for more information on this part of the project. 

Boskalis is the general contractor for the overall project and is responsible for construction. Completion of the new station forecourt is expected by summer 2020.

Note: Maxwan and Posad have merged to become PosadMaxwan. This project is one of a few that is being carried out under one of our former names.
