Villa Pu is a new youth and community centre realised by the award-winning Rotterdam-based practice Atelier Kempe Thill. Located in the Osdorp area of Amsterdam, the small-yet-striking, minimalist building consists of two instantly-distinguishable antipodal space concepts: a translucent fully-glazed ground floor used as a ‘public living room ‘, and a monolithic cubic community hall located in the upper part of the building.

The juxtaposing finishes of the extremely smooth and glossy, transparent base and the hermetic rough polyurethane box which rests on top define Villa Pu’s multi-funcional purpose which also translates into the layout and design of the interior of the building.
