Community Campus Holendrecht
The Community Campus Holendrecht, located on a cultural axis in Amsterdam, marks a new impulse. Strategically located next to an academic hospital and train station, the campus with its critical mass of approx. 1.500 apartments and amenities introduces a first residential centre in a predominantly office area. This new campus is the catalyst that ignites the long desired change process from mono-functional office area into a multifunctional city district.
This plan for the former Citybox location, in the northern part of the NDSM shipyard, is the first large-scale development of the area. With dimensions of 85 x 100m, the location is one of the largest city blocks on the west side of the future NDSM development. The architecture is sturdy and simple, which conjures up associations with the Port and New York.
OeverzaaijerLyongo architects and EGM architecten have designed the new building for Hospital Nobo Otrobanda in Curaçao. This cooperation produces a hospital that matches the island Curaçao. A hospital that responds in all aspects to the history, culture, climate, natural circumstances and the population of Curaçao. A hospital “di nos” (ours), a hospital that should be for everyone, with a recognizable environment that calms and contributes towards recovery.
Campus City is the follow-up to an earlier research and design based project called Campus Without Boundaries. The Campus City Project examines whether the next generation campus can be used as a model for future cities. There is growing evidence that cities with both universities and a strong connection to research and innovation outperform those with a more industrial base in terms of economic growth and adaptability to change.
