Façade art Groningen
2 December 2020 – Paas Vastgoed Ontwikkeling has purchased the Noorder Trade Center, located at Leonard Springerlaan 9 in Groningen. The building is currently being transformed by SHP Bouwbedrijven into a modern, sustainable office campus. Architectural firm De Zwarte Hond designed the revitalization and devised space for a permanent art installation.
M2uur bv was commissioned to create 18 designs for two façade sides. The designs are abstract translations of “grasses” and a nod to the landscape architect Leonard Springer.
The designs are recognizable from a distance and form an unrecognizable abstract pattern from close range. The works are processed on Steni Vision panels and mounted around the 18 columns. The project will be completed in the spring of 2021.
