Ambulance facility in Zeist, the Netherlands by Architectenforum

Thursday, November 2nd, 2017

Article source: Architectenforum

The ambulance station in Zeist is a sustainable design. The client asked for a nearly energy neutral building constructed with renewable materials.

The building is located on the outskirts of town, near the edge of a forest. The L-shaped plan is carefully positioned between existing trees. A large beech tree shades the 4 meter high window in the main staffroom. An ambulance post has no public function, patients will never enter this building. We decided to design no façade facing the road to the entrance of the nearby hospital. Instead green sloping walls rise from the ground and transform into in the curved line of the roof, blending in with the surrounding trees and the edge of the woodlands.

Golden Garland in Tiel, the Netherlands by wUrck

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

Article source: wUrck 

The “Golden Garland” (K.G. Zochernrug) is a bridge in Tiel that strengthens the route from the shopping area to the city center. The bridge crosses the water diagonally and forms the best possible visual and functional connection between the embankments. By defining the entrance to the city the Garland plays the role of a “city gate”. In an elegant gesture the bridge invites people into the city.

Patio House in Velp, the Netherlands by Bloot Architecture

Wednesday, November 1st, 2017

Article source: Bloot Architecture

In Velp, the Netherlands, a sustainable refurbishment and extension of  a dilapidated 1950s villa has been completed.

The villa is situated on the edge of National Park Veluwezoom, a nature reserve. The many small rooms of the original house have been reduced to a small number of light and spacious spaces and a concrete extension with patio was added to the house. Although the various living spaces are in open connection with each other, the separate rooms retain their own intimate atmosphere.

ID College and ROC Leiden offer secondary vocational training and education.

The complexity and historical nature of the inner city site required a thorough analysis in order to developed a design vision which reconciled these aspects within the brief. The integrated approach in which architecture, urban planning, landscape, interior design and engineering converge results in a unique design.

Ijhal in Amsterdam, The Netherlands by Wiel Arets Architects

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017

Article source: Wiel Arets Architects

The IJhal is a recently completed pedestrian passageway situated within Amsterdam’s central train station, on its the northern, waterside–which abuts the river it’s named for, the IJ. The central station has been under continuous construction, for approximately the last decade, as the city spearheaded a total transformation of the original nineteenth century building, by expanding it below, above, and at its rear, in order to accommodate the city’s growing population, and increasing number of tourists. A major portion of the station’s renovation and expansion is related to the soon to-be opened ‘North-South’ metro line–which is set to run along that axis of the city, and for the first time, enable one of the city’s metro lines to cross under the river IJ, at the back of the city’s train station. Amsterdam’s central train station is thus a confluence point for its many taxis, metro lines, trams, trains, and infinite cyclists, in addition to being a loading point for the IJ’s ferry-boat traffic; it is a major node of pedestrian and public transportation movement in Amsterdam.

Kossmann.dejong designs the new Canon of Dutch History exhibition in the Holland Open Air Museum, Arnhem

The Canon of Dutch History, the list of 50 topics that summarises Dutch history, comes to life as a new permanent exhibition in the Holland Open Air Museum in Arnhem. Housed in the refurbished entrance pavilion designed by Mecanoo, Kossmann.dejong’s design is imagined as a multimedia film set. The theatrical combination of physical, interactive and audio-visual media with unique collection presentations results in an engaging and fascinating visual narrative.

IKC de Geluksvogel in Maastricht, The Netherlands by UArchitects

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

Article source: UArchitects

This a unique sustainable and digital school in the Netherlands.

Two existing schools in two neighbouring locations in Maastricht are merging into a new school on a new location in that city. This particular location was chosen to strengthen the weak social structure of the two neighbourhoods and to introduce a new digital education system to learn also more about the environment, nature and sustainability. Even the playground outside has different zones to help children (re)discover nature and explore their world by means of experiments or to build and test objects.
