IMd - transformation of a former steel factory

For over 15 years, the structural engineers of IMd and architects of Ector Hoogstad Architecten have worked together on various large scale developments. When IMd found an abandoned steel factory for their new HQ, Ector Hoogstad Architecten transformed the building into a ‘playground for engineers’. A series of climatized pavilions, accommodating over 70 workstations and meeting rooms, were placed throughout the spacious hall and linked with various bridges on the first floor. The ‘in-between’ space forms the social heart of IMd HQ with a stage staircase, herb garden, lounge and informal meeting areas. The concept of climatizing only the workspaces and leaving the steel framework intact resulted in a highly sustainable and spacious building with a limited budget.
