Office Building--Willemswerf

Wim Gerhard Quist
1989




Views from the north; left: with the Red Apple in front of it (KCAP--Kees Christiaanse)

Located at the far eastern end of Boompjes, this slender slab is supported at the rear (here--center and right) by vertical piers, which also contain vertical circulation. The facade has a skin of white glazed tiles.

 

Views from the southeast with the diagonal glass "waterfall"--the dramatic front facing the Nieuwe Maas River

The high rise contains 16 storeys of office and a five-story car park. It is about 100 meters wide and 90 meters high.
