We design primarily for people, construct spaces that are relevant to place, and forge connections that give a building purpose.

This has remained consistent, underlying values to Mecanoo's practice over the past four decades.

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen Rotterdam, Netherlands

Mecanoo's design for the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen embodies vision and craftsmanship. The design focuses on five main principles: A welcoming entrance, improving logistics, enhancing the museum routing, restoring the national monuments Van der Steur, Bodon, and Henket buildings and connecting the museum with the city and the Museum Park. 

Macau Central Library Macau, China

While clearly a contemporary structure within a traditional context, the new Central Library will provide a forward-thinking platform for influencing its surroundings. The uniform skin wraps the library volume and opens up like a book page to the main entrance facing the Tap Seac square.

Natural History Museum Abu Dhabi Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

Mecanoo designed the Natural History Museum Abu Dhabi to resonate with natural rock formations, reflecting the museum’s goal of improving understanding of and engagement with the natural world.

Havenziekenhuis Redevelopment Rotterdam, Netherlands

The former Havenziekenhuis in Rotterdam is being transformed into a residential complex. The project includes the renovation of the hospital’s historic main building and the construction of two residential towers flanking it. This ambitious development will provide 380 homes and a range of community facilities.

European Investment Bank Kirchberg, Luxembourg

The departure point for the design of the new European Investment Bank (EIB) is the connection between the green valley north of the site and the urban European administration quarter to the south. The building and its exterior public space express the fundamental values of the European Union and the EIB: respect for human dignity and human rights, freedom, democracy, equality and the rule of law.
