The Luchtsingel in Rotterdam, Netherlands by ZUS

Sunday, October 11th, 2015

Article source: ZUS 

The Luchtsingel is open. Decades after their separation, the 400-meter-long pedestrian bridge has reconnected three districts in the heart of Rotterdam. The Luchtsingel was initiated and designed by the Rotterdam-based architects ZUS and is the world’s first piece of public infrastructure to be accomplished mostly through crowdfunding. Together with the new public spaces, including the Delftsehof, Dakakker, Pompenburg Park, and the Hofplein Station Roof Park, a ‘three-dimensional cityscape’ has arisen.

After a very fast construction period of only two months a spectaculair new pavilion shines in the heart of Rotterdam.

“How does a building looks like which is not used for half a year during the winter? “
During the winter it is closed, but when the sun arrives the building transforms. The arrival of the spring is visible in the building: screens move up, doors slide open and the flags wave into the air. The building reacts on the summer sun.

Cabrio Apartment in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by HUNK-design

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Article source: HUNK-design

The transformation of a very common 19th century Rotterdam upstairs apartment into an unique city paradise.

The residents, Bart Cardinaal en Nadine Roos, had been residents at this address since their student time. With the arrival of their daughter the rented apartment didn’t suffice any more and the residents were on the look out for a home with a (roof)garden. Then the opportunity came along to buy the house for a very good price and it also turned out that it was possible to rebuild the house drastically. As they have their own architectural and design firm, HUNK-design, this became the start of the transformation.

Article source: MAXWAN architects + urbanists

Large budgets and enormous amounts of energy are spent on the upgrading of major Dutch railway stations in Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Rotterdam.

By paying close attention to all public space surrounding the railway hubs, the promise of true Transport Oriented Development can be kept alive.
