Conradstraat Tower

The London architect Matthijs La Roi has developed a project to develop the tallest skyscraper in the Netherlands.

Design is a response to the strategic ambitions of the city of Rotterdam to build two new skyscrapers next to the central station. The new spatial planning rules allow one of the two 180-meter high skyscrapers to be built.

The design of the project consists of an eight-story "landscraper" combined with a 42-storey skyscraper. The podium of the complex will host both commercial spaces and offices, while the 42 floors of the skyscraper is reserved exclusively for housing. The building will be located next to the monumental post-war "Groothandelsgebouw" and the new central station building with its iconic canopy.

The brick was chosen as the main external cladding material of the building, giving the whole scheme a monolithic appearance. The faηade consists of a variant of protruding windows and balconies. The windows start flat towards the tower podium and become more undulating upwards. The more undulating windows allow a wider range of views towards the surrounding environment and reach a wider area for the adjoining floors.
