The complex was designed for a furniture factory and its offices. It is located in a flat landscape facing a network of roads. The architecture responds to this stark, horizontal landscape with an equally taut volume that echoes the lines and flatness of its setting. Unlike most industrial architecture that tends to produce opaque containers, the Lensvelt complex developed a facade which, when lit from inside, becomes a screen offering a blurred view of its interior, a ghostly perception for those in passing vehicles who catch a glimpse of it. This effect is achieved through a fašade built with translucent glass strips. The landscape office West 8 was invited to collaborate in the entrance and interior gardens.
