42 PalletCentral • July-August 2015 he Stork Restaurant and Café, located on the Amsterdam waterfront, has been transformed from an industrial warehouse into an attractive café and the largest fish restaurant of Europe. The eatery retains its rustic ambiance with décor that incorporates concrete sewer parts, old cable spools and upcycled wooden pallets used for tables and seating. Situated in one of the most beautiful spots along Amsterdam's iconic IJ canal, the former Stork factory in Amsterdam-North is undergoing transformation into a cultural, dining and recreational hot spot. The aim is to develop the complex with a high industrial character, in which hospitality businesses and creative events can take place in a unique and inspiring environment. The Stork Restaurant/Café is one of the first realizations of the site's new incarnation, and it is the product of a collaboration between CUBE and SOLUZ architects of Amsterdam. Pieter van der Pot of CUBE Architecten and Marloes van Heteren of SOLUZ Architecten were commissioned by Eigen Haard to oversee redevelopment of the 30,000 square meter industrial space over the next 15 years as it changes and grows.
