This was a short listed project for a development in Buiksloterham, Amsterdam The brief aimed to achieve a similar high urban density similar to the Sporenburg Borneo development (165-275 dph (dwellings per hectare)) to the East of the City. This combines live/work units with amenities at ground level that the community can use. It is therefore a highly effective sustainable community with low Co2 omissions. The other objective was to generate a creative ‘business’ community by allowing residents to work from home and use facilities within the scheme to have meetings, presentations and client lunches. Access to central Amsterdam and Schipol airport is by river taxi and train reducing vehicular traffic flow within the urban transport network.
