De Zwarte Hond wins the Steden in Beweging (StiB) Award with the Zinder cultural building
De Zwarte Hond and the municipality of Tiel have won the Steden in Beweging (StiB) Award 2019 for Zinder, a cultural building in Tiel, Gelderland. The jury announced this during the Provada real estate fair in Amsterdam. The prize is awarded for the most successful area enhancement that contributes to the vitality and dynamics of a city or village. Commissioned by the VolkerWessels construction group, De Zwarte Hond not only designed the building, it was also responsible for the urban development and – together with Felixx – for the landscape design.
“The building will really be used multi-functionally by Tielenaren, but also by visitors from the region and beyond. From boys living nearby who run in and out, to senior citizens who drop by for a drink.” Quote from the jury report.
The three other nominees for the StiB Award were imagewharf, Rhapsody in West in Amsterdam, and Noordgebouw in Utrecht. The specialist jury this year comprised: Executive Board Chairman Claudia Zuiderwijk of the Chamber of Commerce, real estate director Nicole Maarsen of Syntrus Achmea Real Estate & Finance, Emeritus Professor for Area Development Friso de Zeeuw of TU Delft, architect/owner Robert Winkel of Mei Architects, and chief editor of Vastgoedmarkt Johannes van Bentum.
The award is an initiative of Syntrus Achmea Real Estate & Finance and the Vastgoedmarkt trade journal. Previous winners were, among others, Zwembad Hart van Zuid in Rotterdam, Gasthuyspoort in Breda and De Hallen in Amsterdam.
