The redevelopment and restoration of the special Geldermalsen station building was completed in 2015, designed by Ruland Architecten.

The masonry with its special facade drawing in colored brick has been restored. The unique island station of Geldermalsen, a special part of the industrial heritage, has been restored to its full glory.
