The new four-star Fletcher Hotel in Amsterdam has been given a unique, sustainable interior. The hotel opened to the public on 11 January. Rising design talent Robert Kolenik (31) endowed the inspiring design with his own deliberate style: eco-chic. The eco-chic style stands for natural, unique and honest materials which simultaneously have to exude luxury and warmth too.

The sports hall was commissioned by a group of sports clubs; a football club, a netball club and a volleyball club. The combined effort of this group – for example with volunteering construction workers – made it possible to construct this building on a very tight budget. For us the challenge was to design a building that would house all the clubs, could be used both separately and simultaneously by the different users and still be a notable landmark for the small community of Liessel. By combining parts of the functions of the original program and the newly designed flexible spaces, we were able to reduce the total gross floor area and thereby the total building cost.

The design for the Theatre Spijkenisse focuses on the placement and orientation of the building in the urban location, whilst simultaneously providing architectural solutions for programming needs and public access.
Traffic flows play an important role in the organisation of the building. Access routes to the theatre form an essential artery for the city, with the theatre providing a point of recognition for returning visitors and functioning as a visiting card for the city as a whole.

On a former sports field within the ring road of the Dutch town of Groningen, a new residential district is being realised by creating a ‘scenery landscape’. This plan achieves the coherence and transition between the ‘garden vilage’ De Oude Hoogte and the industrial area on the northern side of the ring road. The division into sequential living atmospheres provides a varied range of housing typologies.

Originally built around 1850, the Arresthuis prison building underwent various renovations and expansions until the end of the 20th century. This monumental former prison complex extends over almost an entire city block in the historic centre of Roermond. When the prison facilities moved away from the historic complex and left the city centre of Roermond, the buildings were left unoccupied.
