Hoofddorp Fort Island is part of the Defence Line of Amsterdam, which extends 135 kilometres around the city of Amsterdam. Built between 1880 and 1920, the defence line consists of a unique system of inundation areas and forts. It was inscribed into the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1996.
Our design transforms the 8’100 square metre world heritage site into an appealing public park, encompassing among others a restaurant, a small open air theater and a wild garden. It envisions a restoration of both the fort island and building, saving the monument from further decline.
