Ersamus MC in Rotterdam, Netherlands by EGM architecten

Wednesday, September 19th, 2012

Article source: Ronald Schlundt Bodien

The new Erasmus MC, right in the middle of Rotterdam, is undergoing work. It was a deliberate choice to keep the new building in the heart of the city and not to construct it at the outer circle. Now a hospital rises up with its urban building structure, adding a number of green spaces in the city. As far as the design and facilities are concerned, the Erasmus MC will be able to fully meet expectations by putting its main focus on the independence and well-being of the patient. With this in mind, the structure of the new medical centre is divided into sections based on a number of patient themes which stretch out from the atrium, the centre of each theme. This design provides a logical format in which all the coordinating treatment areas are close together making it easy for the patients to find their way around.

Loft Lloydkwartier by Rotterdam, The Netherlands by 123DV Modern Villas

Thursday, March 22nd, 2012

Article source: 123DV Modern Villas

In a former warehouse in the harbour of Rotterdam a loft is realised. The characteristic of the dwelling is its spaciousness, which exists because of a surplus of space. To maintain this quality, the program of the dwelling is placed into the space in two separate elements. The two elements both have their own materiality and are placed in the space on their own way.

30 Houses in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by BBVH Architects

Tuesday, March 13th, 2012

Article source: BBVH Architects

Dutch architects of BBVH were looking for a solution to give future buyers of their serial housing projects more influence on the layout and size of their homes. BBVH does not want to design homes for the average families of 2,31 person, we want to design homes that fit. Having seen one too many floor plans with the same layout, too small to fit a big family, too big for couples without kids we thought of a different solution.

Tower Hoge Heren in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Friday, February 24th, 2012

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

The structure of the two residential blocks is an intervention in the centre of Rotterdam, a city that is naturally incised by a network of flowing waters. The site of the project is an old commercial trade grounds. The emerging scenery is therefore one of compatibility, and the coexistence of the old and the new.

Vandijk Fashion Store in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by OOZE

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Article source: OOZE

The VANDIJK FASHION STORE lies on the ground floor of a 19th century Dutch style city building in a typically very long and narrow space.

The shop presents itself as an extension of the street rather than a separate luxury unit. A frame-less pane of glass contributes to this blurring of the threshold between inside and out. It sets the interior space as an extension of the street-scape.

  • Name of project: Vandijk Fashion Store
  • Location: Rotterdam, The Netherlands
  • Type of Project: Fashion Store interior
  • Building Costs: 100 000 Euros

Villa Rotterdam in The Netherlands by OOZE architects

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Article source: OOZE architects

Living in a Structure

The project is a redevelopment of a villa located in a green neighborhood of Rotterdam.

The existing villa was composed of an eclectic set of buildings stuck together forming a strange architectural patchwork: An original building from the early 20th century, a first extension built in 1991 mirroring the house and a final touch in 2003 to add 3 rooms and several facilities just before the current owner moved in.

Mini Mall in Rotterdam, Holland by PEÑA architecture & AFARAI

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

Mini Mall: A shopping mall with a compact, contemporary programme in a monumental building.

The Mini Mall consists of 2500 sq. m. of retail and catering space for entrepreneurs, artists, designers and other creative minds, who will breathe new life into this unique area as from spring 2011. The development of the Hofplein Station into a compact shopping mall comes in response to a lack of affordable locations in Rotterdam where fresh new initiatives can see the light of day, but also with the aim to give the neighborhood quality boost.
