Skilledin Office

The Skilledin Office is an innovative indoor-office built in the InnovationDock (Rotterdam,NL) for the Port of Rotterdam. Its organic design balances program constraints and digital load-bearing optimization and fabrication possibilities.

The roof spans 120m2 with a largest span of 8m. It’s constructed from 230 unique 37mm thick Metsäwood panels, directly milled from custom fabrication software with a refurbished ABB Robot. All 3.200 Rothoblaas screws were robotically pre-drilled based on a parametric model of the final design.

It’s the first project in which we show the scalability of industrial robotic fabrication towards an architectural scale.
