MVRDV - Schielandshuis

Schielandshuis

The Schieland House was built in the 1660s and is one of the few historic buildings in the centre of Rotterdam that survived the bombings of the Second World War. As the building sits on a prime location and cannot be extended with a new wing, this proposal suggests lifting the Schieland House onto a new building which then can hold the neutral, functional exhibition spaces that are required. This method of extension becomes like a podium displaying a precious piece of art, the historic building itself.
