deBrug / deKade
The design for the Unilever accommodation is based on a won invited competition for the redevelopment of the Oranjeboom site and new offices for Unilever Nederland on the Nassaukade in Rotterdam.
The team of Dura Vermeer, JHK Architecten and West 8 Urban Design & Landscape Architecture came up with a daring idea. Instead of building at the intended Oranjeboom location, the headquarters were projected out above the existing factory. As a result, an unorthodox ‘bridge building’ at an extremely prominent spot was able to join a family of existing bridges and harbour architecture.
