In the center of Veenendaal stands the residential, commercial and cultural centre ‘Tricotage’ right in the hart of the new town centre at the main square. This square is zoomed to the south by three expressive buildings of Tricotage: Spectrum with the striking ballet hall as a round eye-catcher, the monumental building in the middle and the characteristic flamboyant corner building with a double height shop entrance. Along the new canal residential and retail properties adapt to the existing shopping streets and passages of town. Spectrum combines a music school adult university. Besides optimal classrooms Spectrum has three special rooms, a multipurpose hall and an ensemble room at the public foyer and a ballet hall. They provide space for open stage, festivals, shows, exhibitions or lectures. Around the block shops, restaurants and other amenities at ground level create an urban atmosphere. Below the block is a three-storey public car park. At the same time, this central location is ideally suited as a residential area. On the upper floor there is a rich variety of apartments around two compact and intimate courtyards, combining the dynamic outside world with a quiet and small inner world. The wide variety of the surrounding architecture and its rich industrial history are processed along with the complex program with different functions into a fine ‘knitwear’ - the meaning of Tricotage.
