Penthouse Office by Benthem Crouwel Architects
This strange, curved-ended structure stands 18 feet above the roof of the Las Palmas building in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, overlooking the river below. The Penthouse Office was designed by Bentham Crouwel Architects to provide a modern extension of the original building below it. Inside, smooth white walls and wooden furnishings provide structure to the office, while its glass wall facing the river is the building’s primary focus. The views are picturesque, the mood is bright and productive, and the building itself adds to the mystique of the Rotterdam skyline.
