Two Dutch architectural practices HVDN and Studioninedots have recently completed this vast, waterfront mixed-use development located between Amsterdam’s old town and the Central Station. Encompassing 28 luxurious apartments as well as number of commercial spaces such restaurants and a department store, HVDN/Studioninedots’ building is part of a 200,000-square-feet master plan for the Oosterdokseiland area which ‘consists of high density buildings interwoven with narrow passageways that link enclosed open spaces.’

More about the project:

 

‘At a unique location in Amsterdam, between the old town and the IJ-lake and next to Central Station, The Oosterdokseiland (ODE) is situated. Here, more than 200,000 square feet of modern architecture with a special mix of functions will be realised: housing, offices, a hotel, a library, a conservatorium, shops, bars and restaurants. For this dynamic place HVDN/Studioninedots designed a residential building with restaurants and a department store in the plinth. The building was recently completed and is characterised by a ‘chasm’, the specific shape of the apartments and the luxurious finish.

 

‘The luxury apartments are defined by their expansive views towards Amsterdam’s city centre. Large floor to ceiling windows throughout the apartments are orientated towards the city and their living spaces can justifiably be described as ‘rooms with a view’. Different solutions of window types are chosen as the architectural tool. In conjunction with the deep balconies, this ensures a lively ever changing façade articulated by the play of light and shadow.’
