Westfield Mall of the Netherlands

Our multi-award-winning design for the Westfield Mall of the Netherlands works a magical transformation on what was a dated, run-of-the-mill shopping centre. We were asked to remodel the existing building in Leidschendam to make it an all-round contemporary urban leisure destination, expanding it from 70,000m2 to 200,000m2 in the process to become the Netherlands’ largest mall.

Rotterdam Central Station

The completion of the new 46,000 m² station has put Rotterdam central station squarely back on the map as a major city-centre hub. It plays an important role in the European network of high-speed rail connections, serving as a gateway to Europe. It is here that countless European passengers enter and leave the Netherlands. This two-way connection between the city and Europe also adds an extra dimension to the station and its surroundings. This made it a particularly interesting assignment for us.

Holland Casino Venlo

It was our spectacular design for a flower-shaped, sculptural building that won us the tender for Holland Casino Venlo. Behind its show-stopping good looks, it embodies two major design principles: sustainability, and optimizing the user experience.

From a distance, our unique building is highly visible, appearing as a kind of welcoming gateway to the Netherlands (Venlo is just a short hop from the German border). A colour-changing interactive façade provides a breath taking light show during the darker hours, while emphasizing the casino’s flower-shaped structure.
