Studio Florisvanderkleij has designed an office building in the Netherlands with a low-tech adaptive facade that allows beams of sunlight to fall through the space.
The lantern is a striking architectural paragon of sustainability, a showcase for circular building, composed of re-mountable and re-usable elements.
Basic forms and fair use of materials embolden the rugged beauty of the two-storey wooden structure. All utility installations have been flexibly integrated. This concept enables recycling of up to 90 percent of the detachable building parts.
