Our challenge was to carefully integrate the considerable programme of supermarket, parking garage and dwellings into the small-scale, historical centre of Zoeterwoude. The large volume is divided into smaller properties, so that its size and scale fits in with the centre. The staggering in the façade provides a lively, varied and village-like image. The special materialisation and detailing fit in with the surrounding buildings. The centre plan is a modern-day translation of the characteristic architecture of the village heart of Zoeterwoude.
