The starting point within the plan is the 'emptying' of Koemarkt so that Schiedam’s historical development is once again visible in the surrounding structure. A new pavilion is added in which a number of catering functions and a bicycle shelter are situated. A building is proposed on the VROM site comprising seven strips that are at right angles to the quay, from where they are accessed. There are small-scale businesses and parking facilities at ground level. On top, four strips of varying width provide a diversity of housing typologies. An in-between, collective, external space offers a view of the river Schie.
