Highlight on the highway.

 

 

The exterior staircase along the facade connects the external level of the ground floor with the level of the rooftop and serves as a direct connection to the office space that is stacked on top of the existing building. In combination with the illuminated Wever&Ducre logo, the staircase is clearly visible from the highway and should therefore be seen as a highlight on the facade.

Geometric form finding.

 

 

Due to its length, the staircase is divided into several parts with platforms in between. This sequence of stairs and platforms, together with the existing rasterized concrete element facade, forms the creative structure of the design. By adding, rotating and multiplying, a form is created that is defined by its function that includes both the handrail and the lighting concept.
