Moses Bridge in Halsteren, The Netherlands by RO & AD architecten

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

Article source: RO&AD architecten

The West Brabant Water Line is a defense-line consisting of a series of fortresses and cities with inundation areas in the south-west of the Netherlands. It dates from the 17th century but fell into disrepair in the 19th century. When the water line was finally restored, an access bridge across the the moat of one of the fortresses, Fort de Roovere, was needed. This fort now has a new, recreational function and lies on several routes for cycling and hiking.

The Whale in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Frits van Dongen, de Architekten Cie.

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2011

Article source: Frits van Dongen, de Architekten Cie.

Borneo-Sporenburg, a former harbour area along the shores of the IJ near Amsterdam’s inner city is intended to resemble in its density the Jordaan, a lively Amsterdam inner city quarter. The developers, however, requested a suburban programme from the municipality. This was granted on the condition that the required density of 100 dwellings per hectare would be achieved. To achieve this urban concentration in a suburban programme, Adriaan Geuze of West 8 introduced a fresh typology: inspired by the surrounding water, he created a sea of low-rise buildings, given rhythm by the variation of blocks and open spaces.

Poppodium De Vorstin in Hilversum, The Netherlands by Frits van Dongen, de Architekten Cie.

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Article source: Frits van Dongen, de Architekten Cie.

The Sovereign pop venue is an icon for musical expression, situated at a prominent location in Hilversum. It lies within walking distance from the railway station, at a major crossroads in the inner-city road network, and is clearly visible from the train. As a consequence, the front on the Koninginneweg is the most important façade: it is The Sovereign’s visiting card.

Mennonite Church in Elspeet, The Netherlands by FARO Architecten (designed using Arkey)

Tuesday, November 8th, 2011

Article source: FARO Architecten

Design a church according to the traditional Mennonite principles: a sustainable building, with the user in mind and a space for gathering and meeting. The first Mennonite churches were hidden and inconspicuous; simple places of congregation around the bible. The interiors were sober and as pure as possible. No distraction or ornaments in order to enhance concentration and togetherness. The new church on Mennorode refers to that time.

Garden Studio in Voorburg, The Netherlands by BLOOT Architecture

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Article source: BLOOT Architecture

A building-permit-free garden studio in Voorburg, the Netherlands, to be used by the client as office space and a place for guests to stay. The size of the garden, a brick shed to be maintained, a restricted construction budget and the limitations in height and footprint because of building without a permit, are all of influence on the design. Despite the limitations the starting point was to make a non-static and as free as possible space.

Fort Cortina in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Karelse & den Besten

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

Article source: Karelse & den Besten

As a graphic design agency we already had a long cooperation with Cortina, a wholesale in gift items, before they asked us to design their new headquarters. It was our first architectural assignment.  Fort Cortina is built on the premises of the NDSM-wharf, a former shipyard located on the banks of the river IJ in Amsterdam. In this harsh environment we designed an office and warehouse building that looks like a Morrocan fort. A monolithic structure, rough on the outside with metallized brick walls and smooth on the inside patios that are lined with cedar wood.

Doggers Corner in Den Helder, The Netherlands by LEVS architecten

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011

Article source: LEVS architecten

Doggers Corner lies near Den Helder in the North of Holland. It is placed in the landscape like a fortress. A paradoxical task: a closed juvenile institute with maximum security in combination with an environment where 144 juvenile residents between the ages of 12 and 18 can receive optimal treatment. The open and relaxed design of the Federal Institute for Youths (RIJ) makes for a privileged environment inside the protection and limitations of a wall.

In an inner courtyard close to the city center of Utrecht a playground is situated for the children of the neighborhood. The old existing building on the playground was to be replaced by a new one. The brief called for a modest, durable and safe new building that would upgrade the playground and appeal to children. The building has separate spaces for a kindergarten. By means of a movable partition the spaces can be interlinked to provide space for different activities and multiple uses.
