Buried Heritage

Transformation of Het Stedelijk

More Info


Het Stedelijk is a highschool which is situated in Zutphen, at the northern border of the neighborhood Nieuwstad. Due to its height, shape and materialisation, the building stands out of its contexts and function as a border between the neighborhood and the park, which is behind the building. More highschools are situated in this area, which makes the area active during weekdays, but not active in the evenings and the weekends. This project is focused on the transformation of Het Stedelijk, to re-activate the area and connect the neighborhood with the park again.
