An industrial and cloak building, which reflects the functions it houses, and by size, scale and materialization refers to the surrounding industrial harbor environment.
The new Condor company building for manufacturing and storing high-quality products is in Rotterdam Heijplaat on the dividing line between port and residential area. An area with the rugged surroundings of the port activities, and on the other hand the modest scale of the adjacent residential area.
With a length of 100 meters, a width of 50 meters and a height of 25 meters, the building is easily mentioned. It has a building mass that does not deny its industrial function at the port, but in its effect it respects the rear smaller scale. Railing, detailing, color use and facade construction are the instruments used.
At strategic positions, the facade is made to a limited degree transparent and connects to the human scale. The passer-by will get a picture of the activities that take place inside this sturdy building.
