Restaurant Maagdenhuys in Amsterdam, Netherlands by Brink Licht

Tuesday, December 16th, 2014

Article source: Brink Licht

The Maagdenhuys is a true Amsterdam landmark. The idea was to create a focal point once you are inside the square atrium of the University. For this purpose 36 spheres (Ø 80 cm e Ø 120 cm) were placed in the restaurant to be visible from the entrance of the building through large arched windows and to create a warm welcoming atmosphere and creating depth in the building.

AKBANK in Amsterdam, Netherlands by dagli + atélier d’architecture

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Article source: dagli + atélier d’architecture

AKBANK is the new Netherlands Headquarters of the AKBANK in the Rembrandt Tower in Amsterdam.
The key element for the design is the concrete core of the building. The architects focused on creating a sculptural furniture element around the core, transforming it into the “core object”. The design targets to activate the spaces around the core by using a generic order. The “windmills”, a conception based on generic design, generate endless rotations around the core. The windmills are used on two levels, an upper and a lower level on which they rotate in opposite directions. The dimension of time, i.e. in this case the motion of the user causes with each new perspective unique impressions of space. The space becomes actual space. The repetition of the concept on all of the four walls and the short distances cause the intuitive will to explore the sculpture.
