Friday September 20th, cepezed was closed the whole day while the complete staff went on an excursion. The architects visited cepezed-projects under construction and recently completed.
The bus trip went from the office in Delft to Utrecht, Helmond and eventually Rotterdam. In Utrecht, the already intensely used flexible offices and laboratories of the Danone Innovation Centre were waiting. In Helmond, the designers visited the former Cacaofabriek, a local heritage building which is now being turned into a cultural hotspot. The much-discussed, also Helmond-based, Speelhuis Theatre which was realised in only six months in the Onze Lieve Vrouwe Tenhemelopneming church, was the setting of a delicious lunch. A visit to the Veilingweg complex of the police force in Rotterdam completed the planned schedual of the day. Upon return in Delft, a certain establishment had to endure quite some turbulence for a while.
