Museum Boijmans van Beuningen (Rotterdam)

The depot was built on behalf of the municipality of Rotterdam, designed by architect Winy Maas, co-founder of the Rotterdam-based architectural firm MVRDV. With a height of 39.5 meters, it matches the museum tower of the adjacent Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Besides the rounded shape of the building, the mirrored facade is the most striking feature. The facade consists of 6,609 square meters of glass, divided into 1,664 mirror panels, making the building transparent and blending it into its surroundings. The green environment surrounding the building is reflected in the rooftop garden with a restaurant, featuring a total of seventy-five birch trees and around twenty pine trees. When viewed from above, the greenery of the rooftop garden seamlessly transitions into the green surroundings of the park.

In the early stages, Guillaume Janssen, in collaboration with our partner De Haan Westerhoff, proposed a curved screen solution to effectively darken certain facades. This was necessary to minimize the exposure of artworks to daylight/UV radiation. Some systems incorporate a cord-spring mechanism due to the curvature, allowing the hem-bar and fabric to navigate the bend. Others operate solely on weight to simplify the systems, though they are equipped with special sliding profiles and bearings.
