Patronaat in Haarlem, the Netherlands by diederendirrix architects

Friday, April 13th, 2012

Article source: diederendirrix architects

Haarlem’s pop music venue consists of a foyer and a large auditorium stacked on top of a smaller one so that the program fits neatly into the designated space. An internal street for loading and unloading runs through the building and activity there is fully visible to visitors. This is appropriate for a cultural institution such as this where, other than in the theatre or concert hall, there is no strict separation between front and back stage. Here, a night out means more than just attending a concert and for this reason, emphasis is placed on the visual relationships and routes through the building.

Church Cloister in Nijmegen, the Netherlands by diederendirrix architects

Friday, April 6th, 2012

Article source: Diederendirrix

In this design, church and cloister become one compact entity. The flowing line from the somewhat closed facade together with the prominent bell tower draws the visitor to the entrance of the church. The Mariakapel is gracefully incorporated into the curve of the facade. Once inside, the colossal building turns out to be a light, modern and multifunctional Roman Catholic centre. The church offers seating to 150 people and a sliding wall creates space for 100 more by opening up the conference room which lies behind.

Farmyard, 4 houses at Oud-Empel in The Netherlands by Hilberink Bosch Architecten

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: Hilberink Bosch Architecten

Due to the demolition of several old sheds a unique plot became vacant in Oud-Empel. Oud-Empel is a small village situated along side embankment of the river Maas. The dike divides the village in two parts: the unsafe waterfront where the smaller labourers cottages are situated and a protected side with the large farms and small factories and where the notables lived. With respect to this historical setting four new volumes are scattered loosely on the protected location. The volumes make a characteristic historical composition of a farmyard with a large brick house with barns. But instead a agricultural function this barnyard has a residential function.

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Hotel in The Netherlands by Mecanoo

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Article source: Mecanoo

Iconic appearance
The new Hilton Amsterdam Airport Schiphol hotel is situated in a prominent location alongside the access roads to the international airport terminal. Because the hotel is twisted from the plinth by 45 degrees, one of the facades faces the Ceintuurbaan. This gives the hotel not only momentum, but also a visual connection with the office strip. The building is the final chord of the staccato rhythm of the WTC towers and a welcoming icon to both the Schiphol boulevard and the Ceintuurbaan. The hotel, which features a cubic design and round edges, will differ subtly from its surroundings in both shape and facade. All surrounding buildings at the airport, mainly office buildings, have orthogonal organized facades.

Rieteiland House in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Hans van Heeswijk Architects

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Article source: Hans van Heeswijk Architects

We all occasionally fantasize about our dream home, but few of us ever manage to make it a reality. And how does the architect himself live? In this case, the private home of architect Hans van Heeswijk led to a spacious and light-filled house full of special details. The client and architect Van Heeswijk was encouraged not to settle for off-the-peg solutions. Instead, he seized the opportunity to work to a higher level of ambition in terms of how to use energy, how to maximize the potential of technology, how to respond to the context, and how to stretch the limits of what is possible. The result is a real machine for living in.
