De Hallen Amsterdam Facility Tour

What do you do with a large, vacant industrial building in the middle of a growing urban district? No longer serving its original purpose, demolition is typically the next step; but this former tram depot in trendy Amsterdam Oud-West was uniquely repurposed as a social and cultural hotspot. Fashion, food, film, art, craft and architecture converge at what is now the beating heart of this diverse, centralized part of the city.

Commissioned by the municipality of Amsterdam, the original complex was designed by the Public Works Department – responsible for the design of buildings with a public function: bridges, schools, roads, tram depots – and built between 1901 and 1928 in various phases.

The expressive style of the Amsterdam School is prominently represented. This architectural movement originated in the early 20th century and is characterized by an expressive construction method, clearly reflected in the frequent use of bricks and beautiful truss constructions that can be found throughout the building today.

Despite a thorough renovation, historic details – such as railways still on the ground – have remained intact. As we are increasingly charged with regenerating our facilities for improved efficiency, well-being and versatility, this stimulating facility tour will open your eyes to the possibilities for redesigning and reusing old buildings in a sustainable, circular and visionary way.
