This graduation project is about transforming Campus North on the Hembrug terrain in Zaandam as part of the studio Heritage and Architecture. Hembrug is a former military production terrain and was the logistic heart of the “Stelling of Amsterdam”. This area was left vacant since 2003, but in recent years new occupants inhabit Hembrug. The municipality has plans to make this area a new living and working neighborhood. For the assignment the Hembrug terrain was split up in several ensembles from which we could choose. For this graduation project the focus lies on Campus North. This ensemble contains two buildings; the weapon depot and the machine hall. These buildings were transformed into a décor workshop and cultural center. This graduation project is mostly focused on the cultural center in the machine hall. Existing out of four departments; an art department, music department, dance department and performing department. This cultural center provides an open accessible space where people are supported in their creativity. Within this project I explored the possibilities within the construction of the machine hall. Every department has its own atmosphere and experience of the existing building, creating an interesting journey throughout the building. / Revitalising Heritage: Hembrug Peninsula / Architecture, Urbanism and Building Sciences | Heritage & Architecture
