Three expressive buildings of this complex hem this square at the south side: Spectrum with the striking ballet hall as a round eye-catcher on the left side, the monumental building with café and restaurant in the middle and the characteristic flamboyant corner building with a double-height shop entrance. Along the new canal residential and retail properties adapt to the existing shopping streets and passages of town. Below the block is a three-storey public car park.
Spectrum combines a music school, a People’s University and an adjacent movie-theatre. Besides optimal classrooms Spectrum has three special halls: a multipurpose hall and an ensemble room on ground level at the public foyer and a ballet hall on top floor. They provide space for open stage, festivals, shows, exhibitions or lectures.
Around the block shops, restaurants and other amenities at ground level create an urban atmosphere. Below the block is a three-storey public car park. At the same time, this central location is ideally suited as a residential area. On the upper floor there is a rich variety of apartments around two compact and intimate courtyards, combining the dynamic outside world with a quiet and small inner world.
