Maccreanor Lavington revamps Dutch metro station

Maccreanor Lavington’s has completed this £11.5 million metro station in Amsterdam

The station is one of 13 projects in the running for a RIBA EU Award, which are given to buildings in the European Union but outside the UK and are eligable for the Stirling Prize.

The scheme by the London and Rotterdam-based practice replaces a 1970s building in the Bijlmermeer district of Amsterdam near Grimshaw’s RIBA Award winning Bijlmer ArenA Station.

The ground level of the 550m² station is surrounded by a laser cut stainless steel façade with a floral design designed to let light into the building and be lit up at night to ‘be a lantern for the local neighbourhood’.

From the entrance three escalators take passengers up to the platforms above.
