Apartment building with amenities in nineteenth-century street facade
In the Spaarndammerbuurt district, with a view of the former Houthavens docks – where in the future a waterside residential development is to be built – an apartment block has been constructed with a supermarket and a coffee shop on the ground floor.
The three entrances are separated by semicircular, white concrete forms, as a result of which the appearance of the ground floor contrasts sharply with the brick screen that has been placed in front of the storeys above and which acts as a noise barrier for the galleries behind. The elevation and railings on the openwork galleries are gold-coloured, which due to the interplay with the openwork brick façade creates unusual light effects during the day and at night, and both on the inside and on the outside.
