Seamless flow from dune to hall
The landmark Duinhal in Almere Duin has been completed. Today, the first tenant, supermarket Plus Retail, will open its doors to the public in the new building on the central Duinplein in the heart of Almere's Duin district. The Duinhal will further accommodate a fusion of 7000m2 of hospitality and retail. Claessens Erdmann was commissioned with the concept and architecture up to and including the preliminary design of the unusual building that seems to completely merge and seamlessly flows into the dune landscape.
The architects from Klunder in Rotterdam provided the execution.
According to owner Ed Slooten, the new PLUS supermarket should not only be a place for daily shopping. A surf shop, a restaurant and a takeaway counter for visitors to the nearby beach will soon follow. In the future, the cooking studio will be used by the after-school care center in Duin.
