Designed to release the pressure on the public space of the main shopping avenue of Zaandam, the fietsenpakhuis-building accommodates a daily storage of 700 bicycles. The Fietsenpakhuis is inspired by the archetype of the 'Zaanse' warehouse. An expressive wooden structure of beams and columns supports the building and is enclosed by a shell of brickwork. The Fietsenpakhuis is a public space, inviting all cyclists to enter. A huge folding door that opens completely gives access to a double-height open space with a gently inclined staircase leading to the upper floor. The street facade is transparent showing off the main function of its existence, the stored bicycles. On ground level a big window reveals the workshop of the mechanics. They control the free entrance of the parking, and handle the other functions; public toilets, bike repair, renting out bikes and lockers.
