The growth of agribusiness in the Netherlands’ eastern region inspired the 100% bio-based façade on this natural gas receiving station by Rotterdam-based architecture firm Studio Marco Vermeulen. Made from a bio-resin and hemp fiber composite developed by Dutch research firm NPSP Composites, the cladding depicts the chemical composition of natural gas through a series of “H,” “C,” and “N” relief images, which signify carbon, hydrogen, and nitrogen. The product’s name, Nabasco, stands for “natural-based composites.”
