Competition: Holland Park West
Together with a big team of architects, urbanists, landscape designers and advisors we participated in the final phase of the housing tender for Holland Park West in Diemen. Our project titled Diemen Hout is a car free neighbourhood with a strong social structure built around six green courts and a lake with in its centre the original forest.
New Project: Villa La Marina
Or first project in Spain: a case-study for and alternative to the anonymous boxy architecture of holiday homes. Our design is informed by local tradition of compact, solid building and adds two patios that bring light and green into the heart of the house. Visit the project page here.
On site: Short Stay Sloten
The construction of the 36 short stay apartments in Amsterdam Sloten is almost completed. Exterior works are done, with the black wooden facade nicely reflecting the the winter sun. Currently the interior and landscaping are being finished. The opening is expected first quarter of 2020.
Update: BSH 4a permit submitted
The building application of social housing project BSH 4a in Buiksloterham has been submitted. The project consists of 93 apartments around a central courtyard and 750sqm of commercial programme on ground floor. Construction is planned to start second half of 2020.
Nomination: Architectenweb Award
The renovation of a 50sqm apartment has been competed. The design has a very compact setup that maximises usable space, storage and atmosphere, and minimises need of loose furniture. And as we like it: meticulous attention to detail plus a sustainably all-electric renovation.
