With a renewed entrance area the central station in Amsterdam also offers two brand new parking areas for bicycles. The first parking facility, with 7,000 parking spaces, at the front of the station opened on Wednesday the 25th of January. The commissioning of the second parking facility, with specially designed solid wood ceilings and walls, will follow in three weeks’ time.
Solid wood – sleek, organic and warm
The second bicycle parking is located at the rear North side of the station, under the new IJboulevard and will provide space for another 4,000 bicycles. The design, with a sleek, organic and warm appearance, was provided by VenhoevenCS, DS Landscape Architects and RoyalHaskoningDHV. Both Derako’s solid wooden ceilings and walls have been used inside this space, which flow smoothly into each other.
