What can be done with a 18.000 m2 empty office building situated at the outskirts of the city and that has been deemed unsuited for redevelopment for the last 11 years? This is the big challenge faced with B.Amsterdam at the Johan Huizingalaan in Amsterdam. From the start, NEXT architects was closely involved in the transformation of this static cube-shaped building into a lively hotspot for startups, freelancers and creative entrepreneurs. Strategic interventions are used to strengthen the quality, experience and identity of the building.

“Paradise is the term for a place of timeless harmony”
In Somalia a simple flue often means death. Especially if you are young or newborn. The death-rate among children is the highest in the world.
Sweden has a high influx of Somalian refugees.

ROC Mondriaan in The Hague officially opened the schools that were renovated by Fokkema & Partners to become a new Hospitality Campus. At the opening, the Mayor of The Hague Van Aartsen stated: ‘This new campus is an asset to the city and for education in the region’. Today more than ever, the school can cooperate with the city and local business opening its facilities for events and meetings. The design by Fokkema & Partners provides the students with a fully equipped and bright learning environment as well as with a vibrant heart where they can practice their skills. Organized around a grand café in the central atrium there are several restaurant “pockets”. These pockets with different hospitality concepts each have their unique style and offer splendid views of the student activity in the preparation kitchens. A new canopy over the entrance accentuates the view into the grand café depot.

Responding to strong and specific data, our proposal for this project purposefully takes into consideration the cultural heritage in which it is set. Situated at terminus of the Damour River, the site is a gently sloping terrain with stupendous views of the Mediterranean and the river. Our proposal utilizes a radical system that is found in several natural formations: a branching configuration. It seemed like the natural solution to gently break down the site’s slope into a series of volumes perfectly oriented to the key sea and river views without obstruction from other buildings. Each “branch” allows direct street access, both pedestrian and vehicular, and soon individual volumes start to emerge following a rigorous strategy of sitting, form and placement in relation to external context, program requirements, and maximized privacy.

Not Whole Fence pays homage to the simpler days of baseball, of watching the great American past
ime through a wooden fence. Imagine a child, peeking through the knotholes with the impressionable canvas of youth, evoked by a sense of wonder and hope or devoted fans who cannot afford tickets, sneaking glances through small openings with playfully mischievous eyes, excited by the possibility of joyous victory or getting caught.

The goal is to transform the site into a hospitality experience, the feeling of space and program into the art of experience, the actions into a viable and flexible development program.
The border: The listed buildings demarcate the central outdoor space with their shape, they accumulate the cultural activities, touristic infrastructure, hospitality, relaxation and entertainment programs (Interactive Museum, Agri-tourism, Baths, Accommodation). The enhancement of uses with reversible constructions of (container) type in a discreet relationship with the listed buildings reinforces the concept of limit and functions as a transitional element from and to the central area (Central Square), into the diffusion area (Natural Element).

Twickenham Stadium, the home of English rugby,was looking to upgrade the customer experience at its food and beverage retail offers in order to be truly world-class across all areas of its offer in time for the 2015 Rugby World Cup, which England is set to host after winning the 2009 selection bid. At the same time, the stadium’s owners – the RFU (Rugby Football Union)- had changed a number of its core branding elements and these also had to be incorporated into any new designs. The result is the Twickenham Experience – a joint venture between the RFU and operator Levy Restaurants(the sports and leisure division of Compass UK & Ireland).

A brand new hospitality concept. A low cost, essential housing module, made and conceived in jail with inmates. A proposal, a product, an exhibition featuring an idea for temporary and social housing, spread hotels, hostels. Can design be a mean for social innovation? Can it provide answers to new emerging needs? In other words, can it be a freedom tool?
Freedom room is a project developed by Aldo Cibic, Tommaso Corà, Marco Tortoioli Ricci in collaboration with one of the Italian High Security Prisons, Spoleto’s correctional facility. Comodo – a cooperative- has started since 2003 its education activities in that prison, dedicated to inmates’ professional training in design, grapichs and publishing.

In the spring of 2012, Terravista Vineyards opened the doors of its new winery facility. The boutique winery, located between Penticton and Naramata, was started by Bob and Senka Tennant, the founders of Black Hills Estate Winery. It was designed to suit the production and storage needs of the winemakers, who plan to produce up to 2000 cases of wine a year.
