PILOTS FOR SUS­TAIN­ABLE PILOT­ING, IJMUIDEN

Weather and wind, ships, strong quays, locks, bridges and steel indus­try smoke. This is the con­text for the Pilotage Service’s new pilot oper­at­ing base. Inspired by this envi­ron­ment, a sus­tain­able and energy-​generating build­ing has been con­structed from sturdy, robust mate­ri­als. Its loca­tion so close to Tatas­teel was the inspi­ra­tion for using corten steel, a deter­min­ing fea­ture that encir­cles the first floor of the building.
