With Emerging Market Koemarkt is given a large roof that will serve as a place for socialising, temporary events and trade. Services and functions such as an information point and office space are situated in the pylons supporting the large roof construction. On the northern side of the VROM site a natural water basin is created and this will attract visitors from the city. The southern side has a Kasbah-like structure (the VROM grid) that can grow organically. The remaining space is filled with two triangular buildings, with shops and housing.
