Coolsingel Project by OMA

Project: Coolsingel Project
Designed by OMA
Location: Rotterdam, Netherlands
Completion time: 2013

OMA: Two contextual observations triggered the design process. The position of the site in the urban context of the city Rotterdam can truly be regarded as the center of Rotterdam. This is the moment where Rotterdam’s most important streets: Coolsingel, Lijnbaan, Binnenweg and Beurstraverse merge together. The second observation is Rotterdam’s current construction development that almost entirely consists of tower projects. The high-rise creates an impressive skyline, but due to mono-functionality and its lack of engagement with the surrounding public domain it does not succeed to enhance the attractiveness and liveliness of the centre.
