McDonald’s invited Mei architects to design a new restaurant on the renewed Coolsingel. The new pavilion has been carefully detailed and articulated to open up views of the monumental post office behind it, resulting in a most compact possible core, with glazed façades all around. A fully transparent lobby makes it seem as though the public space flows through the building. Like the historical buildings in the area, the pavilion features a richly articulated façade, carried out in one single material: brass. This warm and elegant-looking material is vandal-proof and enduring at the same time. This McDonald’s is open day 24/7. By day the building is inviting to shoppers, while in the evening it glows to attract the nightlife crowd. The skin of brass is perforated with heart-shaped openings to form a ‘veil’ around the glazed building through which illumination shines. With the application of various degrees of perforation, the brass façade depicts a crowd of people on Coolsingel.
