SkilledIn office

Studio RAP

Architecture | Spatial

The Skilledin Office designed by Studio RAP (Robotics Architecture Production) is an innovative indoor-office built in the InnovationDock (Rotterdam) for the Port of Rotterdam. This project shows the scalability of industrial robotic fabrication towards an architectural scale.

The organic design balances program constraints and digital load-bearing optimization and fabrication possibilities. The roof spans 120m2 with a largest span of 8 m. It is constructed from 230 unique 37 mm thick Metsäwood panels, directly milled from custom fabrication software with a refurbished ABB Robot. All 3200 Rothoblaas screws were robotically pre-drilled based on a parametric model of the final design.

SkilledIn Office by Studio RAP is the winner of the ARC16 Innovation Award.
