The Meent in Rotterdam is located by the large-scale open square "de Binnenrotte" located East of Rotterdam's city-centre. Where the Meent and the Binnenrotten come together exists a contrasting sense of scale and atmospheres. In this design project it came to be a challenge of how this area could develop towards the future in relation to one another. In this case it was not the case how to respond to a large urban scaled area or how to respond to a smaller sclae lively neighborhood, but how to respond to both.

The design repsonds to both scales and atmospheres. Mostly by creating retail spaces and allowing for public acces on the ground floor.
