Tuinstede in Amsterdam, the Netherlands by SNITKER/BORST/ARCHITECTS

Friday, May 11th, 2012


Tuinstede is the last of three new blocks that have been built in the Noordstrook, north of Delflandplein in the Amsterdam district New West. The urban design for the Noordstrook is made by Snitker/Borst Architects. In order to increase the density of the neighbourhood the existing modernist open strip building plan will be replaced by three urban closed blocks with large communal courtyards. One of the streets will remain without cars and will be arranged as a playground for children. The urban design will be executed in two phases. Recently the first phase was finished. In a second phase the U-shaped blocks will be completed to closed blocks. The three blocks are designed by Dick van Gameren, ANA and Snitker/Borst Architects, respectively.

Church Cloister in Nijmegen, the Netherlands by diederendirrix architects

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: Diederendirrix

In this design, church and cloister become one compact entity. The flowing line from the somewhat closed facade together with the prominent bell tower draws the visitor to the entrance of the church. The Mariakapel is gracefully incorporated into the curve of the facade. Once inside, the colossal building turns out to be a light, modern and multifunctional Roman Catholic centre. The church offers seating to 150 people and a sliding wall creates space for 100 more by opening up the conference room which lies behind.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Hotel in The Netherlands by Mecanoo

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: Mecanoo

Iconic appearance
The new Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol hotel is situated in a prominent location alongside the access roads to the international airport terminal. Because the hotel is twisted from the plinth by 45 degrees, one of the facades faces the Ceintuurbaan. This gives the hotel not only momentum, but also a visual connection with the office strip. The building is the final chord of the staccato rhythm of the WTC towers and a welcoming icon to both the Schiphol boulevard and the Ceintuurbaan. The hotel, which features a cubic design and round edges, will differ subtly from its surroundings in both shape and facade. All surrounding buildings at the airport, mainly office buildings, have orthogonal organized facades.

Rieteiland House in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Hans van Heeswijk Architects

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Article source: Hans van Heeswijk Architects

We all occasionally fantasize about our dream home, but few of us ever manage to make it a reality. And how does the architect himself live? In this case, the private home of architect Hans van Heeswijk led to a spacious and light-filled house full of special details. The client and architect Van Heeswijk was encouraged not to settle for off-the-peg solutions. Instead, he seized the opportunity to work to a higher level of ambition in terms of how to use energy, how to maximize the potential of technology, how to respond to the context, and how to stretch the limits of what is possible. The result is a real machine for living in.

Atelier Havoc Milk in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by FLAT Architects

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Article source: FLAT Architects

A reinterpretation of the ateliers on the Zomerdijkstraat
Atelier Havoc Milk has been constructed on a scale 1 : 2 as part of the exhibition atelier Malkovich concerning the future atelier. Instead of starting from scratch, the design is all about the reinterpretation of the monumental atelier/habitats on the Zomerdijkstraat in Amsterdam (1932-1934). The archetypical atelier with its high ceilings and northern light has got great qualities. The ateliers on the Zomerdijkstraat possess these qualities and rest on a famous artist’s tradition. It would be a shame to ignore this archetypical monument when building an atelier for the future.

Stills Flagship store in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Doepel Strijkers

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

Article source: Doepel Strijkers

On the Cornelis Schuijtstraat in Amsterdam a flagship store has been realized for the label Stills. The spatial interventions in the hull, which visually connects the floors, are not emphasized by smoothing them but has been kept visible to show additions and finishing layers over time. There is a base from which the original shop and its transformations over time remained visible. This pattern of textures in the existing building is complemented by an object. A spatial translation based on the values of the label.

The Whale in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Frits van Dongen, de Architekten Cie.

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Article source: Frits van Dongen, de Architekten Cie.

Borneo-Sporenburg, a former harbour area along the shores of the IJ near Amsterdam’s inner city is intended to resemble in its density the Jordaan, a lively Amsterdam inner city quarter. The developers, however, requested a suburban programme from the municipality. This was granted on the condition that the required density of 100 dwellings per hectare would be achieved. To achieve this urban concentration in a suburban programme, Adriaan Geuze of West 8 introduced a fresh typology: inspired by the surrounding water, he created a sea of low-rise buildings, given rhythm by the variation of blocks and open spaces.
