Stainless steel architecture, Amsterdam

Tuesday, 6 May 2014

Architecture studio Maccreanor Lavington has recently completed the refurbishment of a metro station, originally built in 1970, in Bijlmermeer, Amsterdam. The stainless steel façade, a material chosen for its durability and low maintenance, is decorated with an intricate floral design.

The laser cut motifs allow natural light to flow through the entrance and create lace-like projections on the floor and walls, turning a regular metro station used by over 100,000 residents every day into an inspiring, stimulating place.
