The mast has been craned into place on top of the Veemgebouw. The design features integrated LED lighting, continuing the local tradition for night time illuminations across the city's skyline. It echoes the mast that stood on top of the building in its previous incarnation as a factory for the Philips electrical company.
Renovation work continues at the Royale Belge in Brussels. The façade replacement of the tower has been completed, which replicates the original design but with an expanded insulation zone. Work on the podium façade is underway, with a series of new openings connecting it to the landscape. A large cut has been made in the base of the building making way for the new atrium and four new columns to support the existing diagrid roof have been added.

The landscape and interiors of Caruso St John's Veemgebouw Strijp S are now taking shape. The top floor of new construction contains 40 apartments, arranged around a landscaped courtyard, with external facades of curving brickwork that form a new dramatic top to the building.
Caruso St John's work on a 1940’s industrial building has created new working and living spaces for a young family. The project lightly repairs the existing almost cubic building. The new construction is a new roof built almost to the limits of what is permitted by the planning regulations, a steep volume that rises up from the eaves along the street to make a new broad façade facing south towards the rear yard.
Construction has completed on Caruso St John's Paulaner housing in Munich. The 36,000m² new building on Welfenstrasse provides three hundred apartments for both private sale and social tenants, along with a crèche, kindergarten and retail units on the ground floor.
Construction continues on the Grosser Burstah office building in Hamburg. The new office building, due to be completed in 2023, is part of a larger development of the city north of the St Nikolai Memorial; with the aim to re-establish a scale and urbanism which is consistent with the older streets of the central quarter.
