The Timmerhuis in Rotterdam was officially opened on 11th December 2015. This was celebrated with many proud people from Rotterdam. The building has offices, apartments, shops, several restaurants and bars and a museum that will be opened early 2016.
The Timmerhuis is a symbol of the restoration of pre-war Rotterdam. It is a place where past, present and future get together. And part of it, from the fifties, has been kept. The design from architects OMA has been developed, realised and subsequently been maintained for 15 years by Heymans. Next to the getting together of past, present and future durability also plays an important role. Simaxx is used to monitor the functioning of the installations, to reduce CO2 emissions and to reduce cost.
