In 2015 ontving TomDavid architectenbureau € 2.500 om het project SubRise te realiseren. Inmiddels is SubRise te bewonderen bij het Havenbedrijf Rotterdam.



On a unique metropolitan site on the Maas, the SubRise transforms the seemingly monofunctional quay into a cheerful small-scale place to stay; human scale. The ‘Sub-rise’ is for everyone and only appears when the maritime logistics and supplies are ready for the day activities. The kinetic architecture, the programming and the paradox of the location all contribute to the happy experience of the visitor: an unexpected piece of happiness.
