“De Bubble” is one of two striking blob buildings included in the master plan for the shopping area around the “18 Septemberplein” in Eindhoven, and was realized by Octatube. The developers of the building had a high ambition in terms of sustainability and innovation. In the concept for De Bubble, the façade, structure, and spatiality have been developed into one self-supporting shell. The geodesic dome consists of a steel frame of pentagons and hexagons with a smooth façade of various triangular glass infills. The façade design is characterized by a high level of finish, with no visible fasteners.
Octatube Services carries out all maintenance for this project using positioning techniques. This prevents leaks and we provide advice on use and maintenance to minimize crucial damage in the busy shopping area.
