Westraven in Utrecht is a large-scale combination of an existing office building and new construction for various sections of the Ministry of Public Works and Water Management, situated in the Westraven area between the Amsterdam-Rijnkanaal and the junction of the A2 and A12 motorways. The programme covers more than 53,000 m2 and consists of office space, conference facilities, a national conference centre, a communications centre, and the Future Center for Rijkswaterstaat.
The existing high-rise construction has been completely renovated and reorganized. An elongated four-storey building has risen around the foot of this construction. Voids in the floors combined with façades made entirely of glass give a strong impulse to the spatial experience of the high-rise block. Atriums, conservatories, voids and inner gardens furnish the transparent new construction with an unprecedented spatial quality.

Atriums, conservatories, voids and inner gardens furnish the transparent new construction with an unprecedented spatial quality. A revolutionary feature of this office building, designed by cepezed architects, is the innovative second-skin façade of open-weave, teflon-coated glass fibre that offers all-round protection against the wind and makes it possible to work with open windows, even on the top floors.
