It is a vast new plinth building that comprises four existing and two new office towers of the Central Tax Office. Central Tax Office Walterboscomplex is located in the Netherlands, a 45,000 m2 building designed by Neutelings Riedijk Architects. It has a huge rainwater pond used as a cooling device for the building. This project is completed in 2007.
Besides four existing and two new office towers, all communal functions are also situated in this new extension. These communal functions include a parking area, a reception, print shop, restaurant, sports center, and also a congress center. This building is not an ordinary office building but a modern building that provides complete facilities for working.
Around two large patio gardens, the plinth building is designed as a dugout basement level. There is also a huge rainwater pond that covers the entire building roof. This pond is also used as a building cooling device. In the pond, a series of steel-clad light wells float, the only visible elements of the sunken building.
