Mobility Hub Mechelen
new multifunctional transferium
The city of Mechelen is transforming the Keerdok and Eandis site near Rode-Kruisplein into a brand new city district with 800 homes. POLO Architects, Archipelago Architects and Vogt Landscape architects collaborated on the winning tender design for the first development phase; a multifunctional, iconic, green and virtually energy-neutral mobility hub on the Eandis peninsula on the side of Antwerpsepoort. This project is a crucial step in the implementation of sustainable mobility and infrastructure in a liveable Mechelen.
The striking construction will boast a publicly accessible green rooftop garden as well as an open-air event space on a lower floor featuring a view on the historic centre.
The podium’s commercial activities and the carefully designed entrance square, the hub’s beating heart, turn the base of the building into an attractive and vibrant spot.
The building was designed from a contextual and future-proof perspective, making it flexible, polyvalent and customisable. The intelligent shell allows the building layers to be given a new purpose over time. This landmark building will first be converted into offices, retail space and parking space.
Besides the construction of this new mobility hub on the Eandis site, POLO Architects will also be in charge of the development of 54 apartments on Rode-Kruisplein during the first phase.
