Printing office


This building accommodates a medium sized printing office, “Drukgroep Maasland”. Spaces for standing and sitting activities are combined into one single volume. A longitudinal extendable model in which everytime a cross section cut is taken it produces a complete segment of a printing office. Contrary to conventional typologies the production hall with its large window is of main importance. For the printer a view to the outside world, for a passer-by a picture frame filled with printing activities. November 1988 this design was awarded the first price for spatial quality in the province of Zuid-Holland.
