location Apeldoorn
function showroom
contributed by jpmm

Located in a newly formed industrial area between the Apeldoorn' s city center and the national highway, the concern Kwakkel that distributes building and sanitary ware, required new facilities, such as administration, showroom, storage, service area, a cafeteria and restaurant. Occupying the entire site, the program was equally divided into exterior and interior spaces. The main volume was stretched laterally across the site, following its sinuous profile, while at the same time distributing storage and parking areas on the remainder of the site. With the exception for the clear glazed foyer, the building is completely enveloped in translucent white polycarbonate panels. The translucent skin, combined with the various internal patios carved into the volume of the building, form various lighting effects along its articulated surface. This, along with the strong vertical frame of the polycarbonate panels enhances the geometry of the building.
