The bicycle storage is not merely a building to keep bicycles dry. It is a place for neighbours to meet and watch people play on the basketball field next to the building. Half of the bicycle storage is surrounded with a bench.

barrels as main structure
The Buurt Bestuurt, neighbourhood organisation, invited Ilse Bouwman and me to investigate possibilities for a bicycle storage at Virulyplein, Rotterdam West.
The main structure consists of barrels formerly used to transport honey that are supported by metal beams. Little gardens are planted inside the barrels. The roof is green and covered with bees’ favorite plants and flowers.
nice to meet you!
