Powerhouse Company has designed the Floating Office in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

This project is the biggest and most sustainable office in the world, pioneering large-scale floating ultra-sustainable constructions on city waters and marks the start of the larger Rotterdam Rijnhaven renovation in particular.

Within this development, the Floating Office Rotterdam reflects the mission of the Global Centre on Adaptation (GCA).

FOR houses the headquarters of this top global knowledge centre that works as a solutions broker to accelerate action and support for adaptation solutions. The exceptionally climate-resistant building is energy positive, and CO2 negative, and if the water level rises due to climate change, it will float.


This project has been shortlisted in the sustainable building category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
