Vertical City ‘De Rotterdam’ that located in Rotterdam, Netherlands, was designed by Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA). This building accommodates functions that create a synergetic use of the different facilities by the various occupants. For example, residents can use the fitness and catering facilities, and office users can benefit from the conference and hospitality facilities in the hotel and catering establishments.
The ground floor is largely devoted to public amenities, with lobbies of functions such as the hotel/cinema/apartments and offices forming the heart of the building. Three access cores suffice to serve the different parts of the building and provide access for each program. These lobbies are interconnected by a large public hall that serves as a general traffic hub for all the functions and users in the building.
