Marine Base Amsterdam Building 27E in The Netherlands by bureau SLA

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

Article source: bureau SLA

The Marine Base in Amsterdam has been a restricted military area for centuries, located in the heart of the city. In January 2015, the compound has begun a gradual transition towards a more public program. The departure of the designated marine units will be completed in 2018. Building 27E, a former education facility, is the first building on the site to be renovated for a public program. It had recently been dismantled and stripped down to a bare concrete skeleton. In June 2014 The Central Government Real Estate Agency commissioned bureau SLA to present a design accommodating new uses within the building. To host the Dutch Presidency of the European Union, taking place during the first half of 2016, the building was completed in January 2016.

Crystal Houses, a flagship store in Amsterdam, Netherlands by MVRDV

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: MVRDV

Yesterday the glass doors of Crystal Houses opened, a visionary exploration into reimagining the possible uses of glass in construction. The entirely transparent façade of a high-end flagship store on Amsterdam’s upmarket shopping street, PC Hooftstraat, uses glass bricks, glass windows frames and glass architraves in a way to evoke the vernacular of the area with the goal to maintain the character of the site. The 620 m2 of retail and 220 m2 of housing, were designed for investor Warenar. The design unites the ambition of Amsterdam to have large distinctive flagship stores without compromising the historical ensemble. The project, conceptualised by MVRDV, was developed and constructed as part of a multi-team collaboration including Gietermans & Van Dijk Architects, Delft University of Technology, Brouwer & Kok engineers, ABT consulting engineers, Poesia (brand of Vetreria Resanese) glass manufacturers from Italy and contractor Wessels Zeist.

On Kop Zuidas in the south of Amsterdam the scaffolding of project Square has been dismantled, revealing the nicely detailed masonry of the outer façade. Square is a compact residential building with 111 mid-market rental apartments. With its on-site restaurant and young inhabitants, Square will serve as a lively center-spot for this new neighborhood between the Rivierenbuurt, RAI and Amstelpark. A linden tree has recently been planted in the inner courtyard, soon to be a showpiece of 8 metres tall. The gate will be enriched with an art piece, a filigree fence with bronze linden branches. At the beginning of May, the new inhabitants will move into their new homes.

Cuyperspassage in Amsterdam, Netherlands by Benthem Crouwel Architects

Thursday, February 18th, 2016

Article source: Benthem Crouwel Architects 

Cuyperspassage is the name of the new tunnel at Amsterdam Central Station that connects the city and the waters of the IJ-river. Since the end of 2015 it has been used by large numbers of cyclists, some 15,000 daily, and pedestrians 24 hours a day. This ‘slow traffic corridor’ was exactly what many users of the city felt was lacking. What once was by necessity a left or right turn is now, at long last, straight ahead. The tunnel is clad on one side by nearly 80,000 Delft Blue tiles: a true Dutch spectacle at a central spot in Amsterdam.

WATER VILLA in Amsterdam, Netherlands by +31ARCHITECTS

Sunday, November 1st, 2015

Article source: +31ARCHITECTS

Q: When designing a houseboat or structure sitting alongside a body of water, what are the considerations or alterations you have to make as opposed to a “regular” building? What is the most difficult part to resolve in a floating house?

A: There are a few aspects for floating houses that are of the outmost importance:

Weight:

You always have to make calculations for the weight of the boat because it has to float.

the Volume of the hull that is below the water level has to be compensated by the weight of the floating building. If you have a displacement of 1m³ of water you will need to compensate this with a weight of about 1000 kg. Before execution we make calculations off the total weight, including the extra weight that people will need for furniture, books and all other house stuff that they will put in the floating house.
