House ‘VV’ provides living space for a couple who were already living in the small waterland wilderness on the fringe of Amsterdam Agglomeration. As the site is subject to occasional flooding, the house is set upon an island-like wooden deck, leaving nature almost untouched. While facing the river with an austere waterfront façade, the house has a more private, sunny side inland.

The Quirijn Park is situated on a narrow strip of land that was once intended for the main traffic access to North Tilburg. The new urban development plan transforms this open area into a living link between the formerly separated neighbourhoods of Quirijnskto and Heikant, and brings about increased housing differentiation within North Tilburg. The emphasis therefore also lies on thee nw connections between the bordering neighbourhoods. The park works like a ‘zip fastene rb’etween both districts.

ArtA will be an exciting mixture of public functions: a ‘sandwich’ of cinema, square, museum and park: Art House,Art Square, Art Show, Art Park.
By pushing this programmatic sandwich down on one side the roof becomes accessible. At the same time the building opens up to the river. An easily accessible roof landscape emerges draped over vibrant city life: ‘urban moraine’.
