This plan for the VROM site envisages the arcade as a structuring element for public space, with a flexibly-programmed framework for development. Koemarkt is laid out for pavement cafés and events, with the arcade marking the boundary between the traffic and pedestrian areas. A reinterpretation of the former 'Rotterdamse Poort' (Rotterdam gate) makes the entrance to the old city visible once again. Based on the measurement system of the arcade, a combined residential and work building and a hotel are proposed on the VROM site, forming the start of the future organic infill.
