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.

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.

Vernooy House in Haarzuilens, The Netherlands by Van Rooijen Architecten

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Article source: Van Rooijen Architecten

A deteriorated farmhouse in the vicinity of the castle De Haar was demolished and replaced by a new one. The context of the rural surroundings and the dominant roof shape of the old farmhouse were the ingredients for the design concept of the new farmhouse. The new house has its own strong characteristics and refers to the ‘old’ only at an abstract level and can be appreciated as a ‘sculpture in the landscape’.

Article source: Atelier Kempe Tthill

The project is under construction at the edge of Bijlmerpark in the central area of Amsterdam-Zuidoost and is used as a housing complex for drug-addicted. As a typology it is very similar to a classical hotel. Small individual units of a size between 15-25m2 are surrounding a very generous lobby used as the central activity space for a group of up to 50 inhabitants. This “collective living room” has a beautiful rooflight and enjoys nice views on the park. On the top of this space is a little courtyard placed, offering the inhabitant’s an intimate outside space covered by the Amsterdam sky.

Avvan van Buerenplein in The Hague, The Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Friday, September 9th, 2011

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

The location of the Anna van Beuren tower will be the new Anna van Beuren square, located directly next to the Centraal Station of The Hague. The situation of the building, alongside the under construction Centraal Station, the recently complete ‘New Babylon’ housing and mixed use complex, and a large underground parking garage, will further serve to strengthen and unify this highly visible site in the center of the city. The tower will take the center place on this new square, incorporating student housing and various gastronomic and retail outlets, encouraging ‘interiority’.
