If you have ever been to the centre of Rotterdam, you might have noticed De Karel Doorman, a 70-metre-high apartment block built right on top of the old Ter Meulen shopping mall. It is just one of the many eye-catching creations of Ibelings van Tilburg architecten. From its office in the Dutch town of Capelle aan den IJssel, the team works on prestigious projects. “Whether it’s an office building, an airport, an apartment complex or a flagship store, we always focus on maintaining a balance between aesthetics, usability and sustainability,” says architect and director Marc Ibelings.
