For the tender “Landmark Galgeriet Monnickendam” we designed a landmark with a light and airy sphere to it. Both roofs emphasize the diagonals in the harbour, merge themselves into the city’s skyline and create a modest instant of recognition from the far-reaching Waterland. The building is energy neutral, including over 2000 m2 photovoltaic panels, and offers sun and an everlasting view of the water to all residents. We are proud of our proposal which narrowly finished second place.
