Terberg is a family business. In 1869 Johannes Bernardus Terberg started as a village blacksmith in Benschop and currently the 4th generation is at the helm of a factory specializing in manufacturing Terminal, RoRo, Yard tractors and derived vehicles for the market segments ports, logistics, industry , road / rail and airports. Terberg operates internationally: in more than 100 countries around the world Terberg vehicles are active and supported in operation through a network of distributors and own offices.
With the major expansion of the plant in Benschop the entrance is shifted from the side of the terrain to the front. For the visibility of this entrance that lies slightly back from the road, we designed a large canopy which also serves functionally to keep visitors dry at login. The canopy is supported freely from the center and in that center is also the porter’s lodge. The ground floor is kept as transparent as possible with minimal detail to maximize visibility to all sides. The second floor houses support functions and contrasts with the ground floor by being completely closed. We searched for an optimal ratio between the sizes of canopy, construction, floor plan and facade. The model was 3D printed.
