The Netherlands Architectural Institute [NAI] in Rotterdam is undergoing a major building renovation and the director, Ole Bouman, wants to transform it from a knowledge institute into a museum. his concept is based on achieving the following features; hospitable, inspiring, concerned competent and optimistic. His target groups are architects, culture consumers, adolescents, and tourists. Also important is that the restaurant can function independently from the museum itself. Our design concept creates a strong base where spaces remain open but zones are created through color and texture definition. The space is defined by areas of “pantone shades of gray”, thus allowing the softer gray of the restaurant to blend into the whites of the entry area. Furniture by Piet Boon, Moooi and Moroso and carpets by Nani Maquina complete the whole. A large sculpture by Madeleine Berkhemer creates soft light in the bar area of the restaurant. The terrace extends out over the water from there, with a low ring of light below the wooden deck at night.
