Cultural Quarter Assen

De Zwarte Hond as Architects

In 2008 De ZwarteHond won the design competition for a multifunctional culture building in Assen. The site, at the edge of the historical city was transformed via a design & build construction into a big complex with functions such as a theater, cinema, library, cafés, restaurants and apartments.


The new cultural complex is a monumental and traditional building made of Dutch brickwork, steel and glass. It therefore fits into the context of Assen, rich with old mansions, fortresses and churches. The grand entrance of the building is situated next to a new theatre square, which is a lively and pleasant place to stay for a drink after visiting the cultural complex.


A historical stone wall and a staircase of monumental size connect the square directly to the entrance of the building. The square forms a gate to a large lobby/foyer from where the different venues can be visited. It’s the place to see and be seen.


The square and the lobby continue the tradition of a rich sequence of streets, alleys, squares and gardens and connect the cultural program with the urban fabric of Assen.
