‘t Karregat in Eindhoven, Netherlands by Diederendirrix architects

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2016

Article source: Diederendirrix architects

’t Karregat (1973) has been renovated by diederendirrix architects in conjunction with architecten|en|en and has space for the school, day-care centre and some community facilities. ‘t Karregat, designed by architect Frank van Klingeren, was one of the first multifunctional centres in the Netherlands. Underneath a large continuous roof, supported by steel umbrellas, he left free space without partitioning walls for a supermarket, small shops, primary schools, a sports hall, and a community centre. The building in the area Herzenbroeken in Eindhoven received ample international attention, but it turned out that the experimental lay-out didn’t work. The users themselves soon divided the space with partitions until the space underneath the roof was totally congested.

“We have designed the ideals of that time with current functionalities and techniques.” Paul Diederen, architect diederendirrix

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.

Summer house Midlaren in Drenthe, Netherlands by Kwint architects

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

Article source: Kwint architects

We were asked to design a simple summer home. The result is a straight forward house, of rich and spatial design in map and cross section. Internally, it seems entirely to consist of two separate houses, similar to a bronze sculpture of Giacometti entitled: Figure in a Box between Two Boxes which are Houses.
