Ateliereen has designed a lunchroom and workshop for Cello Zorg. Cello provides care and services for people with disabilities to living, working and leisure. At the site of the windmill in Best they have developed a lunchroom and workshop for these people.

The old mill-house is redesigned as a lunchroom. The exterior of the mill-house has remained mostly intact. The front facade is redesigned with a new and more open look to mark the entrance to the lunchroom. This same materials are used at the facade of the workshop, so that it is clear that both buildings belong together. The interior is a spacious loft that offers a nice view to the mill.

The workshop is housed in a new building which has got a striking facade facing the mill. The open and free layout of the floor plan, is visually divided by a playful roof structure. It offers workplaces with a view to the mill, but also more sheltered places in the back. Between the lunchroom and the workshop there is a small new square that connects the different buildings.
