More about this product

With the open exhibition area at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen, MVRDV Architekten has created a new type of building – a publicly accessible art warehouse in which all of the pieces can be viewed. The idea for the project was first devised in the early 2000s, as the underground storage area belonging to the neighboring Museum Boijmans van Beuningen was constantly at risk of being flooded.

The Boijmans von Beuningen viewable storage area is a building that holds a mirror up to its surroundings – by reflecting its surroundings in its façade, the building has an inconspicuous presence. For the installation of the double-curved – and in some places, triple-curved – mirror panels, MVRDV Architekten opted for the Jansen VISS SG Façade system solution with the RC4 requirements. The 1664 mirrors, which were arranged in 26 rows of 64 mirrors that stretch all the way around the building, were manufactured in China and installed in the building in a VISS SG RC4 façade. What’s more, the seamlessly integrated automatic sliding doors in the entrance areas are a special solution that is based on a Jansen steel profile system.

All of the glazed inner façades have been installed in the Jansen VISS RC3 system with a fire protection requirement of EI60 and equipped with heat-insulated Janisol C4 RC3 fire-proof doors. The VISS façades on the roof structure, which house a restaurant among other things, comply with RC2 burglar protection.
