For Rijkswaterstaat, who are building and maintaining highways, waterways and nature, 24H-architecture designed the new districts head office along the highway in Assen, The Netherlands. A sustainable building was created that explicitly shows the identity of Rijkswaterstaat. The concept represents the three core activities (road, water and green) integrating the site conditions as well: The south façade of the building is brutally solid. Through its mass and its horizontal openings, the wall will block the heat of the sun and at the same time stop the noise of the next door highway. The façade, made of concrete and asphalt with lines and patterns, is an abstract representation of a highway. As the rainwater is directed from the roof over the facade, in time, the facade will become green as moss and plants will start growing. With the Thermal Energy Storage, solar panels and the use of fsc certified wood, the building is classified as Greencalc class A level and Breeam Excellent.
