Yet another Koolhaas in Rotterdam, this time located right in the centre of the city, just behind the historical City Hall. The Timmerhuis accommodates municipal services, offices, and residential units. OMA conceived a modular building with repeated units gradually set back from the street as they rise into two irregular peaks. The building's composition of smaller cells creates an impressive, complex form when viewed from Coolsingel, one of Rotterdam's main arteries, and allows for subtlety and adaptability as the new building meets the Stadstimmerhuis (a municipal building, from 1953), which surrounds it on two sides. The building (ground floor) is open to the public during weekdays from 09.00 to 22.00 hrs. From here you can experience the huge steel construction and you can peek at the adjacent museum.
