New doors in the south wing of railway station Maastricht

In the bicycle shop situated in the south wing of Maastricht station, existing facade openings have been converted into new entrances with spacious doors. Designed to fit the facade in terms of appearance, the doors are still recognizable as a later addition because of the detailing.

This intervention paves the way for further redevelopment of the ground floor.

Meanwhile in The Hague Hollands Spoor station

The new lift construction was recently built in the nationally listed station building The Hague HS. This is an important step towards making platform 1 fully accessible.

In addition to the elevator shaft, the ‘shell construction’ of the new platform stairs is also almost completed and the finishing work can begin.


In the passenger tunnel and the station hall, the spaces are starting to take shape and the new passages provide a good and clear connection.

A new floor at Hollands Spoor

The station hall and passenger tunnel of The Hague Hollands Spoor will get new floor tiles.

The same gray terrazzo tile was chosen as in the newly realized part of the passenger tunnel on the Laakhaven side. This creates an coherent image in terms of floor finish throughout the entire route from the station square to the entrance at Laakhaven. There will be a different pattern in the station hall because the station hall is a substantially different space than the passenger tunnel due to its spacious proportions and great height.


Opening railway station Roermond

The renovated railway station Roermond has festively been opened!

Under the monumental roof construction of the former 1st class waiting room, a snack and a drink can be enjoyed again in the new Station Living Room. Under the beautifully restored stucco ceiling in the adjacent room is a temporary exhibition showing the transformation of the station.

A special find can also be seen in this exhibition. During the work, old service regulations from 1887 were found, which indicate which trains had to be waited for so that travelers could make their connection.

Work has started at The Hague Hollands Spoor station

At The Hague Hollands Spoor station, contractor Dura Vermeer has started construction work to make platform 1 fully accessible, designed by Ruland Architects.

A new lift will be built on a small ‘stamp’ in the middle of the national monument and the entrances from the station hall to the passenger tunnel and the platform will be modified.

Former wall and ceiling finishes are being demolished and excavation of the elevator shaft will soon start. The inconvenience to the traveler is being kept to a minimum.

On the platform preparations are being made for the new staircase.

The first construction phase of Roermond station is nearing completion

New sliding doors were recently installed in the station hall of Roermond station. This means that the work of phase 1 is almost completed and delivery can be made soon.

Meanwhile in Roermond

At Roermond station, the end of the renovation is in sight. Below is a photo compilation of the current state of affairs.

A lot of work is being done on the finishing and furnishing of the ‘Stationshuiskamer’. The wooden roof constructions have become a special feature of these spaces.

The richly ornamented stucco ceilings have been fully restored and returned to their original color scheme.

The reconstruction of the station hall entrance with extensive masonry details is starting to take shape.

Authentic shutters return to railway station Deventer

The Deventer Industrial Heritage Foundation (SIED) is busy reconstructing the window shutters that used to hang on the station building in Deventer. At the request of NS Stations, Ruland Architects advised in the preliminary phase. With the help of very involved volunteers, the shutters were produced in a local carpentry factory. The painting is almost finished and the first shutters will soon be placed.

Renovation of railway station in full swing

The renovation of railway station Roermond is well underway. The beautiful ceilings and constructions have been restored and on the outside the painter has started painting all the woodwork in the original colors. A lot of effort is being made to prepare the building for future use. A great moment for Omroep ML5 (Stichting Omroep Leudal-Maasgouw and RTV Roermond) to include everyone in the renovation:

Disturbing elements in the Roermond station building have been removed with great care, making the original architecture of the building visible again.

A preview of the great spaces that will soon be seen and experienced in the station building.
