The award-winning Rotterdam-based practice Atelier Kempe Thill have recently completed this glass-clad three-storey building which serves as a residential hotel for heroin addicts. Located ‘at a sensitive transition between the square and the park’ in Amsterdam’s Zuidoost borough, the building features an antiseptic, uniformly off-white interior which aims to ‘to offer a calm framework for everyday life’.

More about the project:

 

‘This residential hotel is defined by a differentiated use of space. On the one hand, “long stay” and “short stay” clients are given accommodations in the building, on the other, methadone is administered here and training and employment programs also take place within the building. With forty-five square meters per person, the living space provided is very generous and far exceeds social housing standards, which is surely remarkable from a social point of view.’
