‘’De Rotterdam' Rotterdam wall decoration - Walljar

De Rotterdam is a building on the Wilhelmina pier in Rotterdam, the building is meant to live, work and relax. The building has space for offices, a hotel and apartments. The building has 44 floors, is +/- 149 meters high and has a total area of approximately 160 000 m², making it one of the largest buildings in the Netherlands. De Rotterdam is the most densely built-up part of the Netherlands due to the daily use of about 5000 people and a Floor Space Index of 32.

We came to the design of this print because De Rotterdam is a large part of the skyline of Rotterdam. The building is part of the transformation of the pier into a living/working area. With the painting of De Rotterdam on the wall you can enjoy one of the beautiful buildings on the Rotterdam skyline.

History of De Rotterdam

The building was designed in 1997 by the Office for Metropolitan Architecture of Rem Koolhaas. Developer building fund MAB tried to rent out De Rotterdam, but this was difficult until the municipality of Rotterdam showed an interest in it in 2007. They were interested in housing the municipal services in the building. The building was completed on 15 November 2013.

Between 1873 and 1973 tens of thousands of Europeans emigrated to America with the Holland America Line (HAL) from the Wilhelmina pier in Rotterdam. The name of the building therefore refers to the HAL's flagship: De Rotterdam. The building is part of the transformation of the pier into a living/working area.

Architecture of De Rotterdam

De Rotterdam consists of three interconnected towers on a joint pedestal of thirty meters high which comprises six floors. The bottom two layers of the building form a largely glass rim. The three towers referred to as West Tower, Mid Tower and East Tower, jump several meters in different directions at about 90 meters, which is good for wind stability and also creates terraces. The building offers the possibility of natural ventilation and from the apartments on the west facade there are balconies accessible.
