A multi-functional center (hotel, restaurants, fitness centre, petrol station, garage, mini-golf, parking garage, offices and conference centre etc. ) designed by LIAG Architects in Bleiswijk.
Description from LIAG Architects
Maasstede Vastgoed Ontwikkeling chose LIAG for the design of its entrance lots at the Prisma business park in Bleiswijk. Several architects were invited to compete in a closed competition and submit a concept for a facility centre with a flexible multifunctional building design. The winning proposal by LIAG enables Maasstede to expand the de basic shape of 3000 m2 GFA to three linked buildings with a total of approx. 30,000 m2 GFA.
At the chosen location it is important for the various functions that they be available on the ground floor on both sides. This gives the building an all-round appearance. This is something that is usually solved by a compact design, however that is not possible here due to the parameters. This limits horizontal flexibility. Extending to the adjacent plot limits development possibilities too severely and it would mean that the functions could not expand properly in the first phase.
Solution: a building that is spacious without overtaxing the budget. A building that can grow like a camel; two extra “humps” under the roof with a total of 3,500 m2 extra space._The buildings have a compact basic shape with parking on the roof. The functions vary from a petrol station with restaurant to a conference centre with day-care. Maasstede is currently considering various other users, like offices for the park management.
