In 2014, Studio Selva was asked to design a new façade for a chauffeur's break room next to Station Amsterdam Sloterdijk. The new façade has been executed completely in high-performance modified timber and simply hung onto the existing exterior wall which has been painted black. The rhythmical pattern of lamellae gives a monolithic character, while a custom-made semi-transparent shimmering coating makes the building contrast with the gray concrete structure of the railway above. Through its detached placement and minimalistic detailing the small building can be seen as a piece of furniture on the square.
