The striking white bus drivers building on the bus station at Amsterdam Central houses a workspace, pantry and a canteen for bus drivers on the first floor. Because the canteen is located on this higher level, the drivers have a lot of privacy, with 180 degree views of the bus platform, the river IJ and Amsterdam North. On the ground floor there is space for storage, a technical area and toilets. The bus drivers building can be built in just three months.

Photographer: Federico Kulekdjian

Casa Berazategui by argentinian practice estudio besonias almeida has recently broken ground, adding to a repertoire of three-dimensionally composed concrete structures. Conceived of as masses formed by a series of intersecting planes based on a regular orthogonal grid, the home exemplifies an almost sculptural composition of solid/void, interior/exterior relationships.
