Offices of EHA Rotterdam

Whist designing the newbuild for the Melanchthon College, we discovered the unique architectural qualities of the existing building. For this reason, we suggested preserving and renovating the most characteristic parts - the technology hall and the assembly hall. The two other sections of the building, with classrooms and sports halls, were replaced with a new wing. As the assembly hall was no longer utilised for the school, it was put to new use: a contemporary and comfortable office for our architectural firm.

The former lower vocational technical school (LTS) was designed in the early 1960s by Rein H. Fledderus, co-designer of De Doelen, on the basis of a modular construction system that he had developed together with a few colleagues. The unique roof structure is particularly interesting. Eighteen glass pyramids allow daylight to stream into the building, creating an overwhelmingly light and spacious atmosphere.

Following renovation, the assembly hall has become one big, five-metre high studio. The secretary’s office and administration, a lunch area, conference and exhibition area can be found on the ground floor. The cellar has been arranged as an archive. The double-height studio has mezzanines on both sides, which accommodate a library, sample collections and product documentation. Below this, there are offices and consultation areas.

With this new office, our firm is investing in a part of Rotterdam that is not the first choice for a lot of entrepreneurs. In this way, we are helping to reinforce the urban and social fabric.

In the next few years Utrecht University will dispose of three buildings: the Went building, the Earth Sciences building and the Van Unnik building. » Read more
