MVRDV

The Rotterdam office of MVRDV is housed in a low volume at the rear of the Industriegebouw, a multi-tenant building constructed after the war in the Stadsdriehoek district. The interior reveals that the architects have a liking for lettering, the meeting rooms bearing names like ‘The Workshop Room’, The Magnet Room’ and ‘The Lounge Room’. Each room features a unique colour to reflect the desired mood of a scheduled meeting. One room is dark blue, another orange, and another bright red. Walls, furniture and carpets are in the same RAL colour. For our conversation, Jan Knikker has selected a latte brown room containing lounge chairs and a glass table. The mood: personal and informal.
