National Steel Prize 2014
Industrial Construction category: Toyota Material Handling, Ede
'Structurally, the hall is pure. A structural design as it should be in all industrial buildings. The revelation of expanded metal made of weathered steel never, or very rarely, is seen in this segment, inspiring as it is as a delightful addition, one which lifts this building out of the criticized dime-a-dozen category. Colour differences which result from the oc-casional, and necessary, replacement of panels are evened out naturally by the effects of moisture. Ingenious to inte-grate the façade as sun protection, which includes taking a careful look at rainwater drainage in order to prevent staining.'
