1. The property was not in great shape when the client purchased it: foreclosed in 2011, it endured much vandalism and a habitual squatter. The front of the property was very industrial in appearance, with a tall wooden fence built around the board-formed concrete garage. The combined structure was topped with a large metal electrical pylon (see attached photo). All street-facing surfaces had been painted a putty grey color.

About the Design:
“Life in Expressionism” is а residence in which the owners are taken into the world of Art. The name of the project is taken from the art movement Expressionism, because we use Forms and Colors for emotional effect in order to generate moods and ideas.
To live in this place is one emotional experience rather than physical reality. The dominated acute geometric forms provides a feeling of warmth.

Kindred House was conceived as the residence for two brothers and their families.
Unlike a traditional Indian family which usually spans three or more generations with strict filial hierarchies, the clients in this project are kindred nuclear families. Therefore, the design called for multiple social spaces of overlapping territories and usage along with specific zones for each family unit and family member. It seeks to house an environment where the teenage cousins are together fostered by the four parents.

For the last 20 years, since moving to her apartment, Heather Lang had been dreaming of turning her home from dated and dreary into an airy open-plan New York style loft. Her home, while not the perfect place, was known as Heather’s Hotel, welcoming visitors from far and wide to enjoy wonderfully hospitality and great cooking. Plus, her residence was often the venue for very large family gathering. It was important to her that while the form and feel of her home would change with a new look, that the functionality to continue to allow her place to be a warm gathering place would not change, and would be improved. rzlbd was up to challenge! The results speak for themselves.

These ten houses are part of a master plan for 500 dwellings and a park by the Architecten Cie, called ‘Het Funen, Hidden Delights’. The triangular site is located between the historic center and the recently redeveloped harbor area in the east of Amsterdam, a former parking lot for towed cars. Along the east and the south side a ‘wall’ containing over 300 apartments and office spaces shields the site from the noise of the adjacent railroad. Inside this semi open block a loose grid is set up, containing 16 smaller housing blocks positioned in a park. These ‘Hidden Delights’ vary in height from 9 to 18 meters. A shift from the public to the private has taken place. The urban plan including the park is initiated and commissioned -traditionally operations directed by the City- and developed and build by one single company, IBC Vastgoed. The maintenance of the park will be handled by a private firm, not by the city, but the park will remain publicly accessible. There are three almost square blocks that measure 30.5 by 27.7 meters and should contain 2.5 stories. It was obligatory to build the first two stories in alignment; the third should be 50% building and 50% roof terrace/garden. In our block the volume is distributed evenly over the ten houses; each is allocated 633 cubic meters. The houses are organized according to a typology known as back to back housing. They will be accessed from an aisle in the middle of the block. This “mini-canyon” rids the facades of the obligatory storage spaces and technical facilities that formally have to be accessible from the public domain.
