Welding mask-style storage areas dot Dutch production complex


A mixed-use complex in the Dutch city of Rotterdam by Mei Architecten en Stedenbouwers features a tower with protruding storage areas that look like welding masks bolted onto the facade.

The firm designed the eleven-storey tower for the final phase in a redevelopment of the audio-visual production centre complex in Rotterdam’s Schiecentrale district. The tower is built over the north-west side of a renovated power plant and accommodates offices, apartments and combined live-work units.

Glazing surrounds three sides of the new building, but the east elevation is clad with stainless steel mesh that provides solar shading for communal corridors.
