Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

In Osdorp, southwest of Amsterdam, major changes took place to transform a vacant zone into a residential district connected to the existing housing area alongside it. One part of the residential district is a public garden, Jan van Zutphenplantsoen, where the four towers stand along a newly created water-park. All four towers are sited according to the given urban footprint and take up the maximum envelope, giving a total of 390 apartments evenly distributed over 11 levels.

WSTLND in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by NL Architects

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Article source: NL Architects

The Westlandgracht is a relatively unknown, but beautiful canal in the West of Amsterdam. It is located close to the World Fashion Center but still within the ring road A10. This canal has a surprising characteristic: at one point it expands into a giant pond, or a small lake. Our client discovered that the zoning law allows for a small restaurant to be build here. A strategic location: wonderful scenery combined with infrastructure. It is positioned at one of the radial roads from the center into the western expansions.

Hotel Zenden in Maastricht, the Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Tuesday, June 14th, 2011

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

The Hotel and Sport School Zenden is located within three monumental town houses near the river Maas in Maastricht, the Netherlands. The hotel’s history begins in the late sixties, and originally contained only a pool for swimming lessons. Over the years other functions such as hotel rooms and a Judo school were implemented into the program. Upon the facilities reaching spatial limits, a renovation and reorganisation of the program was needed.

Siemens Hengelo in The Netherlands by NL Architects

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Article source: NL Architects

Hart van Zuid is an industrial area in city of Hengelo. The district is located south of the train station, right in the heart of the city. The area is defined by the typical emblem of 20th century production: the saw-tooth shed.  Hart van Zuid is currently being redeveloped; it will be converted into a lively quarter where people will live and work comfortably. Hart van Zuid is a statement against monoculture: urban life will be celebrated here in a mixed use environment. Education and leisure will be a part the spectrum. High tech industrial activities remain a crucial component.

The B Tower in Rotterdam, The Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

The B Tower is located in the centre of Rotterdam, immediately adjacent to the Bijenkorf department store designed by Marcel Breuer in the late 1950s. Because of its commercial context the site below the Bijenkorf’s roofline is to be fully occupied, while above it, just thirty per cent of the lot towards the sunken shopping mall Beurstraverse, has been released to build a high-rise tower. In order to avoid splitting the project into a basement and a tower, the design stacks three volumes of similar height. The ground-related volume contains a fashion store, The Sting, and a car park; the two upper volumes contain apartments.

H House in Maastricht, The Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

Designed for a couple and sited in a hilly suburban area of Maastricht near the Netherlands-Belgium border, the H House was designed for a couple with a strong interest in the arts. The clients formerly occupied a home directly adjacent to the site before appointing Wiel Arets Architects to design what would become their new home, the H House. Individually an actor and a dancer, and dually landscape architects, the owners are able to keep their landscaping skills honed in the formal garden behind the house, which they occasionally open to the public.

Interpolis, ’t Laar in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by NL architects

Tuesday, June 7th, 2011

Article source: NL architects

Information Technology allows us to re-think the way we work. Working becomes potentially independent from time and place. The insurance company Interpolis has together with Veldhoen Company developed a revolutionary and radical office concept, called ‘Helder Werken’. The central idea is that employees no longer need a fixed workspace. Potentially any place becomes a place to work. They are allowed to choose from numerous high quality rooms and spaces that are optimized for the nature of their business at each point in time. You can take your laptop and cell phone and find a place under a tree, if you want, or go home, or work in the car, or use the ‘clubhouses’ that are especially designed for you. Flex.

Article source: Mecanoo architecten

Urban renewal plan

A large-scale urban renewal project is in progress in the Reimerswaalbuurt in Osdorp, a neighborhood situated at the periphery of Amsterdam. The ambitious plan was made under the supervision of the Architecten Cie. Nine building complexes will be realized with broad streets and auto-free squares. Mecanoo designed the first complex which includes a school, sports hall, pre-school playrooms, a children’s day-care center, a community center, 51 apartments and 21 single family homes. The neighborhood will be enriched with good social housing situated in a network of pleasant and safe streets, squares and public green space with gathering places to socialize in. The result of the fruitful cooperation between the developer Ymere, the school board, design studio Makkink & Bey and artist Elspeth Pikaar is a richly detailed social housing and multi-functional education complex. Mecanoo’s design example will set the stage for the other eight residential complexes.
