The Nedisco factory is one of the most prominent buildings in Venlo. The conversion and restoration of this national monument forms the crux of the Maaswaard Plan, the urban redevelopment to the south of the inner city. The complex – built from concrete, steel and glass – is an exceptional example of industrial architecture, which can be accredited to The International Style with the foundational theory of air, space, and light.

The tradition of this special place is now the studio’s guideline. Pott Architects developed a masterplan to design the industrial park homogeneously.

The Monteroni D’Arbia former tobacco factory area is an opportunity to take up the challenge of a historic building of great physical, social and economic significance. Important in both physical and social terms, this area was a focal point in community life for the whole town and restoration work on it aims to rebuild a fragment of social fabric which is to be entrusted with a strategic re-appropriation role of the town’s physical and social dimension.

The extension project of the chocolate factory covers the three objectives outlined by the client.
- Increases the production surface in the context of the existing factory,
- Expands the administrative areas,
- Restores the museum and shop.
With a contemporary spirit in mind, the materials and the colours used also fits into the traditional method of chocolate presentation. The wood evokes the colour of the cocoa export boxes, while the the top inset glass windows are framed with dark brown metal, reminding the onlooker of the paper wrapper of the goods.

This is not a shed. This is an island. The question posed by the client/artist was the possibility of a cultural island in an industrial site, the concrete fabrication of a utopic site for living, research and production. The architectural response is the result of a research towards a vocabulary of elements which could give meaning to this ambition.
