It will be an iconic building on a beautiful and central location in our capital city. The metamorphosis of the famous Heineken Hoek at the Leidseplein in Amsterdam has begun. Octatube is realizing the spectacular transparent facade and canopy.
In his new book Mick Eekhout – founder and former director of Octatube – illustrates product development in glass facades, glass roofs and applications of cold bent and cold turned double laminated glass. Get inspired by our case studies.
Because the old rooflight in the building next to C30 The Hague needed replacing, we designed, engineered and built a beautiful small gridshell roof in its place. Completely in the visual style of its big brother.
At the end of last year, Octatube switched to clean energy. We covered the large roof area of our factory with solar panels. A perfect place to do so.
As of October 2021, Octatube has been successfully certified the Safety Culture Ladder (SCL) step 3.
Octatube currently works on it's first structural timber gridshell.The Campus Canopy, a design by Benjamin Thomas of MOLA Architecture, will come to life over the course of the coming year.
