Transformation The Hinge / Niels Olivier Architect

In the woods just north of the city of Arnhem a new neighborhood is being developed under the name ‘Buitenplaats Koningsweg’. This former military site will be transformed into a cultural enclave. The complex is known as ‘De Scharnier’, or in English ‘The Hinge’, is situated at the heart of the enclave. These interconnected buildings, erected at right angles to one another, used to accommodate the military theater in one ‘leg’ and the restaurant in the other, but have now become the home, workshop, and studio of a well-known artist.
