Las Palmas Building

The Las Palmas building, built in the 1950’s as the workshop space for the ships of the Holland America Line, was about to be torn down when the opportunity rose to restore this beautiful piece of maritime heritage. The building on the Wilhelmina pier was converted into a multi-functional, flexible space where a mix of cultural and commercial businesses (such as a photography museum, a high-end restaurant, events hall and office spaces) found a home. The complex was expanded with a penthouse  that rests on the roof, its smooth elliptical shape a striking contrast with the industrial warehouse below.
