The Meelmagazijn is a significant building of the second phase of De Meelfabriek project. It is located on the central square along the Singel Canal, creating important dialogues and views with its surroundings.
The remarkable concrete structure of the original building includes columns and slabs that makes this building one of the most iconical element of the whole complex.
The new project emphasizes these emblematic elements by making them visible from the outside.
The existing brick facade is removed to give way to a fully glazed volume, which fits into the concrete structure. Three storeys have been added to the existing building, creating a strong dialogue between the old concrete and the new intervention in glass.
In addition, a series of energy efficient and technological advanced solutions are adopted to reach the highest levels of sustainability, thermal performance and comfort for this monumental building.
