Located in the northern Dutch town of Den Helder, the project occupies a long site between two canals, the Helderskanaal and Werfkanaal where it looks out onto Den Helder’s fine Napoleonic naval yard. West 8’s masterplan for the scheme reflected the character, scale and diversity of the city fabric along each canal and provided for a range of size and cost of dwellings.

Wednesday, April 24th, 2013

Article source: Paul de Vroom Architecten

De Jacobsvlinder (Cinnabar) School, previously known as the Prins Bernhard School, is a part of the restructuring of the Palenstein neighbourhood, a quarter of Zoetermeer near the centre, built in the nineteen-sixties. Architecturally, the new school building forms the link between the urbanity of the Nieuw-Schoutenhoek housing complex currently under construction, and the small-scale character of the existing village of detached houses that directly adjoins the location.

On approach from the south, the volume recognisably marks the entrance to Amsterdam.

Villa Al in Almere, The Netherlands by WHIM Architecture

Tuesday, April 2nd, 2013

Article source: WHIM Architecture

Villa Al is a green villa in a green environment. This proposal emphasises the existing qualities and character of the location.
A meandering river through a green environment is translated into a meandering route through a green pavilion.

In a natural context also the electricity and heating are found in natural resources. A heat pump installation allows for heating from the soil. Electricity is captured by solar panels and from the water motion in the river.

Fire Station in Utrecht ,The Netherlands by Van Rooijen Nourbakhsh Architecten

Saturday, March 23rd, 2013

Article source: Van Rooijen Nourbakhsh Architecten

The program consists of a garage for 3 fire trucks, dressing rooms, workshops office and instructions areas and a cafeteria. The fire station is situated in a suburban area with mainly traditional housing. On the relatively small site a two floor building was designed with a cubic shape. The floor plans are very compact and functionally designed to support speedy action in case of fire and emergencies. One has to reach a calamity within 8 minutes. In contrast with the brick of the houses in the area the fire station was given a specific character expressing the professionalism of the fire brigade.

De Karel Doorman in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by Ibelings van Tilburg Architecten

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Article source: De Karel Doorman

De Karel Doorman consists of the renovation of a shopping building: Ter Meulen and an added residential building. Restoration and new-build The new residential building is up to 70 metres in height and includes 114 apartments. It is built on top of the Ter
Meulen building in Rotterdam. This is an unusual project as the new building literally rests on the columns and foundations of the existing structure. The only additions are a pair of concrete lift shafts which also provide stability. The construction technique is unconventional for a project in the Netherlands, as the main structure is in steel instead of heavy stone-like materials as concrete and limestone.
