Rising to a height of 130 metres, Tree House makes a captivating addition to the Rotterdam skyline, while offering the hospitality sector street-level opportunities to enrich the city’s dynamic urban centre. In the shape of Rotterdam’s innovation and culture platform De Dépendance, Tree House will also be home to a major crowd-puller with socially relevant programming. The stepped wooden terraces on either side of the building provide a pleasant public space for both users and passers-by.
Tree House is at the forefront of circular construction and energy innovations, with a strong focus on the use of sustainable and maintenance-free materials. Meanwhile an abundance of greenery promotes biodiversity and reduces heat stress. Tree House also captures part of the rainwater that runs from the roof of the main hall of Rotterdam Central Station during storms and heavy showers. The building’s smart design choices promote a sustainable and healthy lifestyle among users and visitors. The office section will be delivered with a BREAAM Outstanding certificate.
