Short description │
OV-Terminal and K5 Office Building
The OV-Terminal and the K5 Office Building are the final pieces of the complete masterplan of the
reconstruction of the station area in Arnhem, the so-called Phase 2 of the project. The buildings are
located next to each other and due to the organic forms they smoothly fit into each other. The roof
structure of the OV-Terminal is a steel ship structure inside out. The balcony and road bridge, which
supports the roof, is a complex concrete structure with spans of 25 m.
The K5 Office Building is built next to the OV-Terminal and is an integral part of the project. The
structure consists of steel trusses with steel-concrete floors. Noteworthy features of the project are the
complex forms, the limited number of supports and the structural interaction between K5, the balcony
and road bridge, the roof structure and the existing structure of Phase 1.
