Van der Zwan en ZN*

Hellingweg 5, Den Haag, Nederland

For a shipping company based at the port of Scheveningen, we designed a robust working environment with logically arranged facilities. The ground floor of the building contains areas for storage and inspection of the fishing hauls. On the first floor, the facilities include offices, a canteen and conference rooms, offering 360-degree views from the building. Equally logical is the construction of the building on a pier integrated into the seawall.

For this reason, a pile structure was not permitted. Thanks to the V-shaped structure, the foundations could be limited to two trenches.
