The Netherlands Institute for Ecological Research (NIOO) at the Wageningen University is a refined design by Claus van Wageningen Architecten. The corporate identity of the institute is reflected in the design of this intriguing wooden Cradle 2 Cradle complex. A perfect combination of elegance and identity.
The long lines in the facade are very interesting from a photographic point of view, as is the light coming in through the floor to ceiling glass facade. The wooden facade blends and interacts nicely with the green surroundings. The interior incorporates a thrilling contrast between representative spaces and utility spaces.
