December 2011 The city council of Leiden has voted in favour of starting the next project stage of De Nobel, a pop music venue designed by EHA. The unusually broad consent can be attributed to alderman Jan-Jaap de Haan and his team, but can also be traced back to the great appreciation of our design that was recently displayed at several presentations. The building will contain two halls for pop concerts, a music cafe and amenities, and will be inserted into a historical building block between Marktsteeg and Lange Scheistraat, next to Museum De Lakenhal. Parts of the original buildings on the site will be integrated into the new structure. Construction is scheduled to start mid 2012. More details can be found on the project page.
