Studio Frans van der Ven

Almere | The Netherlands

Completed: 2000

Client: Frans van der Ven

The location is on the outskirts of Almere, in Almere-Buiten. The concept is a box-in-a-box. The outer box is a 9x12x6 m construction of Cor-Ten steel. The inner box is anchored to the outer box with one of its sides, but otherwise stands free in the large space, also from the ceiling. The inner box contains storage, workplace and utilities on the ground floor, and office and archives on the top floor. The inner box has also been lifted from the floor, standing on a wooden base.
