These considerations have lead to the concept in which Rotterdam Airport is turned into a 21st century business estate which combines metropolitan density with wide countryside.
The southern edge of the airport will be enveloped by the program. The height of the new development follows the security rules of the aviation, buildings can be 45 meters tall, the airport tower determines for a part lower buildings to preserve visibility of the entire area. Further cuts in the envelop follow view lines from the motorway and bypass and from the flight platform, offering views towards the skyline and the Rotterdam icons such as the Erasmus bridge and the Euromast. The buildings surrounding the Airport benefit from the vicinity of the terminal building and the view the airport provides, a dynamic and ever changing vista. The envelope can be developed in phases and the terminal building is the only cut in the flowing line of the envelop.
