In a central location in Eindhoven, diederendirrix realised a striking office block in an existing but otherwise unremarkable industrial terrain. The massive block, Le Havre, stands rock-solid and independent in its setting. The concept for the building is clear and simple. The office units are placed around a central hall so that the opportunity of meeting co-workers is maximized. At ground level the building is enclosed by a patio which creates a direct and optimal relationship between the interior and the exterior.
