With industrial products and their famous mopeds (Zundapp and Puch), the renowned company firm Stokvis & Zn. introduced us during the last century to the modern times. The Stokvis-building at the Westzeedijk in Rotterdam was a ‘modern business palace’ with novelties such as car-passages through the building and a covered inner courtyard with and a roof terrace with cafeteria. Now, Mei will breathe new life into this old building (better known as the ‘Oceaanhuis’). Commissioned by Waterford Investments & Vervat Vastgoed, this national monument will be converted to a unique residential building.
