Glass Panels Rabobank van Baerlestraat, Amsterdam, 2015
Patterns and fade on glass
Commission : Rabobank
Architect : Martin Eijkelenboom
Material : Glass
Year : 2015
Commissioned by Rabobank and architect Martin Eijkelenboom I made a design for the large glass walls of the three floor levels and the atrium of the newly renovated Rabobank at the van Baerlestraat in Amsterdam.
To provide privacy in the meeting rooms and workspaces, an overall, seemingly, continuous pattern was placed over these glass walls on all three floor levels. On a single layer of glass a pattern of 'squares in squares' was applied, a line drawing which then merged into the same pattern in diapositive. A fade created more transparency where possible and more diffusion and privacy where needed.
