Train Station Enschede
Keizer Koopmans is currently working together with Bureau B+B urbanism and landscape architecture on a vision for Train Station Enschede and it’s urban surroundings. For a combination of the Municipality of Enschede, ProRail, NS Stations, the Province of Overijssel and the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management, we are investigating how the renewed railroad connection Münster-Zwolle can be integrated into the city and at the same time give a quality impulse to the area. Besides the incorporation of a new railway track and platform, other challenges are integrally addressed; for example, a new bus station, bicycle storage, parking garage for cars, a new station entrance on the north side, redesign of the station square, green- blue structure, climate-adaptive measures and new area developments.
Enschede Station (1950) by architect H.G.J. Schelling is not only a municipal monument but also one of the masterpieces of The Collection, a collection of fifty station buildings that, because of their cultural-historical value, are treated with special attention by NS, Prorail and the Bureau Spoorbouwmeester.
