The Twins Science Park / 24H architecture

Architects: 24H architecture
Location: Sciencepark, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Project Team: Maartje Lammers, Boris Zeisser
Project Area: 14,000 sqm
Project Year: 2012
Client: Heddes Vastgoed
Photographs: Boris Zeisser

Within in de urban scheme of KCAP – Kees Christiaanse for the Science Park in Amsterdam, 24H>architecture was commissioned to make a proposal for one of the five housing projects, called ‘the Twins’. The location is situated between the Oosterringdike and the Caroline Mac Gillavrylaan.

24H’s proposal for the two apartment blocks, 18 and 15 storeys high, house a total of 87 dwellings. Two L shaped volumes slide under each other and are connected through a plinth containing housing and parking. The smaller west tower sits flush upon the east tower, opening up views to and creating the entrance from the dike and the street, as well as providing access to the parking. The east tower is standing on the ground and allows direct access to the houses on street level. Its main entrance and lobby establish a visual connection between the dike and the Caroline Mac Gillavrylaan, with vertical circulation located in the middle.

The facade is made up of a fine grid of slate and glass. Variations in colour from brown to grey as the towers rise connect the building to the elements: brown at the bottom, where the towers root up from the ground; and grey towards the top. The windows have irregular shapes. Throughout the process these windows were named after the mathematical toy, the Tetris cube. Views are magnificent also lying in bed or sitting on your sofa.

The skin tapers outwards at specific parts of the towers to create a noise barrier due to the nearby railway.

De Kameleon / NL Architects

Architect: NL Architects
Location: Bijlmermeer, Netherlands
Client: Principaal / De Key
Project Team: Iwan Hameleers, Gertjan Machiels (Project Architects); Pieter Bannenberg, Walter van Dijk, Kamiel Klaasse (Design); Barbara Luns, Gen Yamamoto, Ana Lagoa Pereira Gomez, Jouke Sieswerda, David de Bruijn, Jung-Wha Cho, Florent Le Corre, Stephan Schülecke, Tomas Amtmann, Joao Viera Costa, Jorge Redondo, Juerg-Ueli Burger, Nora Aursand Iversen, Kim Guldmand Ewers
Year: 2008 – 2012
Photographs: Luuk Kramer, Marcel van der Burg

De Kameleon is a supersized housing block including a new shopping center 
and plenty of parking in the area formerly known as Bijlmermeer. The Bijlmer is the one area in the Netherlands that sometimes is considered a ghetto. At the moment, the area is going through a radical renovation process; an attempt is being made to turn it into a regular Dutch suburb. Standard low-rise housing is introduced that replaces the 10 storey apartment buildings but also the green spaces in-between them. In spite of the new format, the Bijlmer remains exotic; it is the place to be for a sensational Roti or sundried Bats.

The Bijlmer features a fantastic elevated subway track, maybe the only suitable backdrop for an R&B video in the Netherlands.
De Kameleon is placed along the Karspeldreef, one of the main arteries in the area. It is quite a surprise that amidst the new ideology of the small scale such a large new building is projected.

Kameleon is organized in horizontal slices. On ground floor is the new shopping center. 
All shops are accessible directly from public space, there is no collective interior: Kameleon is not a Mall.

The supermarket, normally a bulky program with extensive impenetrable facades, is embedded in smaller units that as such both differentiate and activate the ‘plinth’. There is one shortcut, The Passage, at 2/3rd of the length, creating an ‘8’. The 8 is good for circulation and good for business. From here an escalator connects to the next level, continuing the 8 in the 3rd Dimension. On the 2nd floor is one more supermarket; easily accessible from the public parking on the same level.

Positioning the parking on top of the shops proofed to be cheaper than in a basement. The parking is ‘charged’ by the supermarket on one end and food court / fitness center on the other. Since these programs feature large floor to ceiling heights an extra parking level fits in. The residents will park their cars here.
The facade of the parking is open to the sides allowing natural ventilation. A very large garden is placed on top of the parking. It includes 12 serious trees and a river!

The garden is surrounded by a four story housing block containing 168 apartments. The side facing the Karspeldreef is continuous to protect the garden from street noise and to create an ‘urban wall’; the other side facing the typical hexagonal green space is punctured. The gaps can be used as playgrounds and for BBQ’s. 
The repetitive structure makes the project affordable. The rhythmic building bays of eight meter and the parking and shopping grids correspond nicely. Every other carrying wall is extended to support the balconies and to provide privacy. The large balconies create dynamic patterns.
Winding stairs lead to the garden and differentiate the large courtyard.
A 10 story slab with 58 apartments rests on this flat Block. It creates a counterpoint to the horizontality and becomes a ‘billboard’ facing the subway. A supersized window visually connects the elevated subway and the elevated garden that are precisely the same height.

Gross Usable Floor Space: 55.500 m2
Plot Size: 9.250 m2
Structural Design: Strackee

Headquarters of ING



ING headquarters in Amsterdam, the building is in use is called "boot" because of the characteristic shape of the structure. This is one of the most expensive buildings in the Netherlands, it was built in 2001, designed by the studio Meyer en Van Schooten.

Bank building is designed so. that none of the walls do not form a right angle with the neighboring. Architects abandoned box-shaped, typical of other office buildings. Critics have compared it to a giant sand castle, and the fans relate the architecture of the ancient Incas. The main motif in his artwork - the current water. The sound of waterfalls and fountains produces a calming effect. In the courtyard of the building broken numerous gardens.

The building was built in the narrow area around the ring road of Amsterdam.





The building stands on stilts in height from 9 to 12.5 meters.

Funenpark

The former industrial area, close to the center of Amsterdam near the railway line, was the main architectural and construction event in 2005. In the city center, close to the old narrow canals of Amsterdam rose quarter "Funen" which are residential homes and businesses. Author of the idea - Frits van Dongen, partner at Architekten Cie. His inspiration were closed and traditional urban neighborhoods, and more open "settlements" in Germany, and the British "city of gardens". Transfer them to a rustic spirit right in the heart of Amsterdam - a very original idea, and here at home, set around a central park surrounded with green trees. To protect this treasure from the encroachments of civilization, Van Dongen designed the building, which stretches along the tracks and completely covers "Funen".



























Move within the district only on foot or by bicycle. Machine hidden under the ground.

The expansion and renovation of the Stedelijk Museum by Mels Crouwel

The complete renovation of the Stedelijk Museum, located in Amsterdam's Southern district in the Museum Quarter, had just been unveiled this month. The construction by architect Mels Crouwel involved creating a new building, distinctively different to the original building completed by A.W. Weissman, in 1895.

However it has been designed so that the scales of both buildings are identical, creating a direct and seamless connection between all floors. The project aimed to improve the building so it meets current museum standards and additionally convert all the program spaces into galleries for the well known permanent collection housed there.

The new building is composed of two storeys above the ground and one below which will house gallery spaces for temporary exhibitions, visitor services, public amenities, library and offices. In addition the main entrance has been relocated onto the great public lawn of Amsterdam's Museumplein (Museum Plaza). This has created an active, common ground for the Stedelijk Museum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Rijksmuseum and the Concertgebouw.

From the outside, the new building appears as a floating form which spreads outwards at the roof, creating a broad and flat surface. It matches the height of the original building and creates an overhang where there is a sheltered outdoor plaza space at ground level. Underneath there is an entirely smooth white, oblong mass, canted upwards at one end and supported on white columns. This has already earned the space the nickname, 'the bathtub'.

Within the white form there are the second-floor galleries, auditorium and offices above it. The spaces are entirely surrounded by 271 panels of a pioneering new composite material which uses Twaron® fiber as its key ingredient. Down below the ground-floor level is entirely encased within transparent glass, housing the main entrance and lobby, museum show and restaurant.

Once visitors have moved into the main entrance, they are able to choose either to pass directly into the old building or travel upwards into the new building's exhibition galleries. Petra Blaisse, principal of the firm Inside Outside, has been commissioned by the Stedelijk to design an architectural-scale textile for the interior of the new building, covering the back wall of the restaurant and extending into the entrance hall, where it rises 14m (46ft) to the top.

While the renovation of the National Maritime Museum looks great and is a perfect example how modern and old architecture can go hand in hand, the Stedelijk Museum is the exact opposite of that. Seriously, what were they thinking when they approved that design?

It looks like a wash basin from below. And unfortunately it is also at a very prominent location directly on the Museumplein
