MVRDV complete Glass Farm
The form was inspired by traditional farm buildings
MVRDV has completed the Glass Farm, a multifunctional building in the town of Schijndel, Netherlands.
The 1600sq m building contains shops, restaurants, offices and a wellness centre. It sits in the town square between the church, town hall and main high street.
The form was inspired by traditional farm buildings of the Netherlands. Standing at a height of 14m, it was intentionally designed to be larger than a real farm building.
The exterior is clad in printed glass and will be illuminated at night.
A book will be published later in the year exploring the development of the Glass Farm.
