Putaine Floating office Rotterdam

Putaine will be part of the Floating Office Rotterdam

In the Rijnhaven a floating office will help the Global Center on Adaptation to fulfill its role as a climate adaptation solutions broker. Floating Office Rotterdam is designed by Powerhouse Company and developed by RED Company. FOR will also feature public facilities such as a swimming pool and Putaine, a classy restaurant with a large outdoor terrace.

Putaine is the new venture by the owners of two already rewarded restaurants: De Matroos en het Meisje and Héroine. Putaine is a bit different as it will be an à la carte restaurant in the mid-high segment. Chef Michael Schook already has said he will: ”Cook with influences from all over the world. I don’t stick to the standard combinations. I like cooking with tension and I will do that again here. We will be focused on vegetables a lot, but we will also use beautiful products such as oysters and langoustine.”

Especially for the drinks, Ben Lobos was contacted. The former Dutch Diageo World Class Bartender of the Year. As a consultant, he’s experimenting with new cocktails to be served.

Putaine be teasing

The restaurant is set to open in October and there already is a lot of teasing on the Instagram-account. Inside Rotterdam can already offer a sneak peek. Check the mysterious pictures by Studio Unfolded.

From Putaine there will be a perfect view of the many developments in Rijnhaven. Not too long ago the Rijnhaven was filled with ships. But from 2015 the berths for inland shipping have been relocated, making the Rijnhaven tranquil water. The harbor will partly be filled up and be built upon in the future. On the opposite side of the harbor, the developer of Floating Office Rotterdam has big plans for the Codrico terrain. Frame is already building a luxurious range of new apartments (Bay House), a MGallery Hotel Collection and shops.

Next to the office four Wikkelboats are already moored at a long jetty. These boats can be booked as a meeting room or lounge area and in the evening you can spend the night with up to 8 people. One wikkelboat even offers a jacuzzi. The little sustainable floating tiny houses are largely self-sufficient and made from 24 layers of recycled cardboard.

This way the historic Rijnhaven with its historic quays, industrial monuments and beautiful vistas will become a new part of the center. High-rise buildings will soon be adjacent to a city park with a permanent city ​​beach. This part of town is easily accessible by public transport and will offer more and more facilities for living, working, doing business and recreation.
