New Project: Prinses Margrietstraat
We have been commissioned to design a large free standing villa on a beautiful site in Amsterdam Zuid. The main question: can you design a house with the typical ’20’s feel and attention to detail? Ever since, we have been discovering many great examples as we now look at these houses in a totally different way. Much to learn!
In collaboration with DELVA landscape, we conducted a spatial study into the possibilities of a modular urban principle for living on water, informed by organisational systems of informal water-bound villages in Lagos, historical water cities Venice and Amsterdam, but also the aesthetical quality of floating icebergs and waterlilies.

Update: BSH plot 4a
We have finished the first phase of the design of Buiksloterham kavel 4a for Ymere. This phase mainly focussed on finding the right mix of programme and studying various options for the layout of the compact apartments. This involves the design of smart and compact built-in furniture for optimal use of the minimal available space.
New project: Wisselspoor Utrecht
MEESVISSER has been selected by developer Synchroon as one of three architects for the first phase of Wisselspoor in Utrecht. Together with Space Encounters and Zecc we will fill in the master plan made by Studioninedots and Delva Landscape architects.
Competition: Hamm Kanalkante
We submitted our competition proposal for the Hamm Kanalkante competition. The proposal for the City of Hamm, located along the river Lippe, laces up the historic inner city with the new and proposed canal front quarter. The design was made in collaboration with Bureau B+B urbanism and landscape architecture.
We won the competition for an apartment block with 100 small apartments for starters on the housing market and holders of a refugee status permit. Client is the housing cooperation Ymere that is committed to helping to integrate these new residents of Amsterdam into society by creating buildings with a lively mix of nationalities.
