The transformation of Glashaven 8-12 in Rotterdam, for which Mei designed the plan, is progressing quickly! The former office building will accommodate a residential programme with 87 independent studios for students, communal and private outdoor spaces and a bicycle cellar with storage facilities. To make room for the new programme, a three-storey addition has been placed on top of the existing building.
The impact of the new volume is already clearly visible in the construction photos taken by Aiste Rakauskaite. Read more about the idea behind the new volume and how the building fits in with the existing buildings here.
