Article source: De Bever Architecten

The organization of financial services ‘’De Lage Landen’’, wants to implement ‘the new world of work’ in its organization. As a result, a new location was marked for the main entrance. This inner urban location is the inspiration for the design which resulted in an ultra thin, oval shed with a diameter of 16 meters. The spherical elliptical form has a circumference of 110 meters. It is by three attachment points connected with steel cables on the side walls of the main building and weighs 30 tons.

Drijf in Lelystad, Netherlands by Attika Architekten

Friday, November 14th, 2014

Article source: Attika Architekten

Drijf in Lelystad” consists of eight floating dwellings, for eight families in Lelystad, the Netherlands. Having lived on water in their childhood, these families always dreamt to live on water again. The families united in a collective partnership called “Drijf in Lelystad” (Float in Lelystad) and commissioned Attika Architekten to design eight different but matching floating homes. The municipality of Lelystad, a New Town in a polder 4,8 metres under sea level, provided a water location by widening an existing ditch (poldersloot).

Caspar Wittelplantsoen in Amersfoort, Netherlands by OKRA LANDSCHAPSARCHITECTEN BV

Thursday, November 13th, 2014

Park as a Spatial Anchor

The new Park of Caspar Wittelplantsoen in Amersfoort connects the new building of the Soesterkwartier along Puntenburgerlaan with the existing buildings and acts as a green meeting place for both old and new residents. The ambition is, on a relatively small area, to create an abundance of green. This is achieved by placing a large amount of new trees and grassy plains as the basis for the establishment of the park.

Funen Blok K – Verdana in The Netherlands by NL Architects

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

Article source: NL Architects

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.

Re-Use in Netherlands by Global Architects

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

Article source: Global Architects

The renovation of the top floor of this Dutch mansion was a challenging one since the goal was to restore the traditional function of the rooms in an efficient and contemporary way without compromising the overall spatial experience. The main section of the apartment consists of a large space that contains the living room and the dining room. Two minimalist style built-in closets are centrally positioned alongside both walls and provide the total amount of requested storage space, including a hidden fridge, storage for the laundry machine and a bookcase. A clear division in functionality and the recovery of the proportions of the rooms have been accomplished without diminishing the sensation of the abundant presence of space. Daylight penetrates from both sides the complete depth of the interior and the ceiling hovers unhindered over the entire space.

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.
