Follow the renovation of De Lijnbaan canopies here. Mei architects and planners is particularly proud to be involved in this ambitious renovation to bring back the original high quality in about 800 meters of Lijnbaan facades.
The canopies at the retail premises, together with the crossover canopies, form a characteristic part of the design for De Lijnbaan by the Rotterdam architects Van den Broek and Bakema. Since the construction in 1953, the necessary changes have gradually changed, so that the unity disappeared. With the design of Mei architects and planners, the living room feeling returns to De Lijnbaan. While emphasizing the use of wood and other warm materials, the unity of canopies and façades does justice to the monument as a whole.
The work of this first part of the renovation is expected to be completed in September 2018. According to expectations, the other blocks – Lijnbaan between Aert van Nesstraat, Kruiskade and Korte Lijnbaan – will follow in 2019.
