Book publication ‘BNA Licht Verdicht’

Rotterdam [NL]

The results of the research program of BNA Licht Verdicht have been published in a book!

Together with DiederenDirrix,  PH UrbanismWijnand Galema and Aronsohn, Felixx was part of the design study to densify Rotterdam, by adding program on top of existing post-war buildings. The municipality of Rotterdam is planning to build more housing in the city center, and since most of the buildings are built after the war, constructions are suitable for adding program on top. Three locations in Rotterdam have been researched by the different teams. Felixx explored the possibilities of the old movie theater Lumière and Maaskant cityflat, owned by Manhave vastgoed.

Our study ‘Varianten van Vooruitgang’ consists of 33 strategies for densifying the existing building block, varying from building on the rooftop, to renovating or partially demolishing the existing and adding high-rise. Depending on the required speed of redevelopment, the size of development and current economic, social, or cultural conditions, a choice can be made between the different strategies. This means there is no ‘final plan’, but rather an approach to develop over time. However, all developments start with three basic principles: an active plinth to create a livable street, celebrate the postwar architecture and integrate the public domain.

Our contribution to the book, called ‘Varianten van Vooruitgang’ can be read in the book which can be ordered here.
