What do you imagine when you hear about a penthouse apartment in Rotterdam? The designer of OMA Rem Koolhaas will surely surprise you. The building has a height of 143 m. The penthouse apartment is on the 43rd floor. Of course, the city itself is particularly spectacular when viewed from this bird's eye view. Making this a comfortable but always fascinating experience has been one of the main goals of the architects and designers working on it.
The open living plan always looks modern
Penthouse with modern facade design made of glass
The entire 25m of the facade of this penthouse apartment is covered with glass from the outside. These panels are laid from floor to ceiling. Through this, residents and visitors can enjoy a great view of the river Meuse. Here we also have a nice perspective on some other features of Roterdamer architecture.
This includes the Erasmus Bridge, the Markthal shopping center and Delft city center. The view even extends to the Hague.
With modern architecture, you always make the most of the location
Flowing lines in the interior
From the apartment you discover that the Rotterdam cityscape is shaped by flowing lines. The river also contributes greatly to this. It was incorporated in the design language of the interior design. We rediscover this in the wavy patterns on the ceiling and on the floor. A 20 m long curvy walnut wall was also erected. This is the framework for the comfortable 150 square meter wide living space. Despite the openness of the living plan, there are enough corners and areas where you feel safe and comfortable.
Depending on the perspective, the penthouse appears more modern or traditional
Protection of privacy
The installation of glass walls always harbors the risk of feeling unprotected or uncomfortable due to excessive openness. Different methods are used to protect the privacy of the residents. The walls in the interior were covered with heavy wooden panels. That brings the homely atmosphere back.
The flowing concept was in one form or another all over the place interior adopted. A wonderful example of this is the 8-meter-long kitchen island, which takes on the role of a bar counter from a certain moment.

Two apartments, a luxurious penthouse
This penthouse actually houses two separate apartments. One was designed as a large living area with a kitchen. The second apartment includes 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms, jacuzzi and sauna. The bathroom is 6 meters long and has a view of the port of Rotterdam. The jacuzzi is located to the side of the bed in the master bedroom.
This penthouse construction concept clearly shows how modern living concepts can be fascinated and inspired by the environment. Life in it becomes a unique, never-ending adventure. Basic ideas of such living concepts can also be realized in the public sphere.
