Westflank Noord

The development of Westflank Noord is complex because in this place many interests come together. The main objective of the Master Plan is to create a new center for Utrecht by integrating the new station area with the old city and to achieve synergy between them. In this new plan the Leidsche Rijn and Sijpesteijnkade are to be restored as an important connection to the city center. A 90-meter high residential at the Sijpesteijnkade marks the entrance to the Westflank area. A series of quayside buildings of between 25 and 45 meters high form the transition to the surroundings. In this series of buildings along the quay stands a monument above which the residential tower is designed.

Above are different types of housing from small one person collective housing to bigger family houses. Read more
Le Plantage

Le Plantage, with its fresh white appearance, is embedded within the neighbourhood’s 19th Century grandeur. The design, while referring to the surrounding architecture, does not copy it. Distinctive in scale — it is one of only six free-standing building blocks in Amsterdam — Le Plantage owes its unique character to the ensemble of block, courtyard, and listed chapel at the centre of the courtyard.

RAI Hotel

Our design for ‘Rai Stage’ functions not only as a new entrance to Amsterdam but also as a landmark and beacon for Amsterdam RAI. It is an elegant design that ephasizes verticality without being too imposing. ‘RAI Stage’ hosts two brands, Courtyard by Marriott and Marriot but a single architectural expression was chosen in which the two brands remain visible through a subtle twist. On the one hand, the architecture reflects the Zuidas, while on the other it references the Amsterdam RAI’s classic modernism. Read more
The Spring / Shopping center

This design for The Spring is our entry for the design-competition for the “new” Leidschenhage shopping centre.
