Honorable mention façade renovation Lijnbaan by BNAWritten by: Nicolette Lohman
Very honoured! Our facade renovation at Lijnbaan 35-43 received an honorable mention at the BNA Best Building of the Year award last night. Glad with this recognition for the craftsmanship and the careful further building of the city of Rotterdam. Shopping, living and working happiness lies in today's surrender. We are proud of the honorable mention of the Dutch Architectural Firms Association (BNA). We are even more proud of the team of collaborating parties, the transformation and the contribution to the future 😍 💪
Commissioned by Manhave Vastgoed, BureauVanEig designed a facade for these retail units from the 1960s. By removing the heavy canopy, emphasizing the existing piers and applying slender steel frames with a brass finish, a beautiful facade has emerged. The qualities of Rotterdam's reconstruction architecture are celebrated here! We are pleased with this recognition by the members of the jury.
