transformation Prinsenpoort offices

Mei developes the transformation proposal Green Lofts for the Prinsenpoort Office Buildings at’ s-Gravenweg in Rotterdam. In the proposal, the existing buildings are wrapped in a green envelope. Maintaining the load-bearing facade and the existing vertical circulation points enable the office buildings to be rapidly transformed into residential space for a ‘green & healthy community’.

The new façade provides the building with ‘green balconies’ and gives the building a new identity at the same time. In addition to flexible layout loft dwellings the plan includes sports facilities, a biological shop and a communal garden with pool. To connect with the neighborhood community, these facilities are not only for  Green Lofts residents, but also for local residents.
