A roundup of the projects we worked on during the first six months of 2016. We have been fortunate to work with a wide range of clients, including Lingotto, Dura Vermeer, Van Wijnen and Cordaan. Also we have been intensifying our collaboration with Tom Frantzen (Frantzen et al) on several projects.
North Orleans logo
MEESVISER designed the brand-identity, logo and website for 120 ‘fully equipped designer rentals’ in Amsterdam North, a project envisioning a new interpretation of the traditional New Orleans facade. For the same project we are designing the interiors of the apartments. Starting from November 2016 the units will be available for rent. www.northorleans.nl
New project: Vrijheidslaan
We just finished the sketch design for the merging of three separate units into one new generous apartment in an old ‘Amsterdam school’ apartment building from the 20’s.
Tender Veemarkt Utrecht
Together with SYNCHROON, METABOLIC and DELVA Landscape we designed an ambitious residential project in Utrecht. Sustainability and a circulair economy were the central themes of this tender submission. Through co-commissioning future residents have a substantial influence on the design of the houses, which leads to a versatile over-all design of the housing block. (project page)
In the first eight months in the existence of our partnership we have been busy talking, sketching, researching, studying, rendering, calculating, drawing and thinking. Doing as architects do, really. We’re very proud of the result we achieved in reasonably short time and we are looking forward to more of this next year! Most of the projects are shared on our project page.
Competition: Hamburg runner up
We came in second with our competition proposal for Hafen City in collaboration with Tom Frantzen (Frantzen et al). We developed a scheme for a highly sustainable housing block for a collective ‘baugruppe’. The brief asked for an innovative, sustainable and family friendly building for 28 households, with wood as it’s main building material. (project page)
Autumn meeting WZNH
The autumn meeting of WZNH is traditionally a pleasant gathering for advisors, the board and employees. This year the meeting focused on the future of WZNH and the 100-year anniversary in 2016. Uda Visser joined the meeting as member of the ‘CRK Den Helder’, the municipal committee advising on building and spatial quality.
