Define a named layout.
If you need to use different layouts in some parts of the document, you can set up a global layout, and then define additional named layouts for the deviating parts. You only need to specify the dimensions that differ: unspecified dimensions will be inherited from the global layout.
To switch to a different layout, call it up in the appropriate place in the document. To revert back to the global layout, use \setuplayout[reset].
\setuplayout[...] % global layout \definelayout[wide][...] % layout of the first page \setuplayout[wide] % switch to layout called 'wide' \setuplayout[reset] % switch back to the global layout
To specify in advance that you want to change layouts starting from page 4 (e.g.), use \definelayout[...]. Resetting the layout must be done explicitly; else, the new layout will be used until the end of the document.
% different layout for first two pages \definelayout[wide] \definelayout[reset]
