Interweaving in the existing urban network with placemaking, Rotterdam Centraal Station connects the various characters of the city and marks the beginning of its cultural axis.
Placing the entire station under one roof – the design for Rotterdam Centraal creates an open, light, warm and inviting space while addressing the challenge of connecting two very different parts of the city.
The Grand Station Hall welcomes all visitors and encourages them to explore the city beyond the station.
Incorporating Meaningful Details
Team CS also created a masterplan for the Rotterdam Central District. The ultra-modern station and the surrounding developments reinforce the unique location of Rotterdam within Europe. Today the area is a center for living, working, and travelling with a thriving 24-hour economy.
