1997-1999, Breda, The Netherlands
Furniture company Lensvelt's headquarters is a tautly designed box, set in an ecological garden with swamps and marshes. A gravel moat surrounds the building, while inside a patio entrance was created with a large, sail-like tent under which employees can take their lunch. This was detailed as a still life in wood, slate and ginkgo trees. The tarmac of the parking areas and the loading docks came to life through a linear pattern of white stripes that organises the trucks and cars.
