Domus - - RASSEGNA - Rieder

The Marine Base in Am­s­ter­dam is a for­mer mil­i­tary site in the heart of the city. The 27E build­ing, a for­mer naval train­ing cen­tre, has been con­verted by Dutch ar­chi­tec­ture prac­tice Bureau SLA into a con­fer­ence hall and press cen­tre for the Dutch pres­i­dency of the coun­cil of the Euro­pean Union. The build­ing was stripped back to its con­crete skele­ton and re­clad in fi­bre­glass-re­in­forced ce­ment pan­els. The fa­cade has win­dows 3.5 x 3.5 m with screens in ac­coya wood, fea­tur­ing geo­met­ric de­signs that rep­re­sent the flags of the dif­fer­ent Euro­pean coun­tries.
