DIDDEN VILLAGE

Didden village-MVRDV, Rotterdam, NL 2002-2006

This is a rooftop extension but this is not a simple addition of a floor, it works with the existent volume and creates a new life on the roof.

“The addition can be seen as a prototype for a further densification of the old and existing city. It adds a roof life to the city.” said MVRDV and this for us is the interesting part of this project: how could we re-think densification?
