Together with Mick & Michael we designed a small skatepark especially for Amsterdam Noord.
The vibe of Amsterdam Noord, known for its frumpish and picturesque qualities is caught in this difficult but cute Skatepark.
Small concrete lanes painted with cobble stones, bring the skaters ultimately to the emblemetic centre of the track: the Canta.
A house should be an adventure. We made one of a rowhouse.
On an almost empty lot on the north side of the Amsterdam river IJ, we proposed the new Skatepark of Amsterdam. A new icon on a refurbished waterfront.
Remodelation and renovation of a Catalunyan Finca.
Shaking hands with the technology, creations and ideas of tomorrow.
Plan 3 of the city of the sun sizes 450 houses, subdivided into ‘green’ housing islands and a 500 meter long rigid strip.
34 apartments divided over 6 storeys and 17 special care apartments on the ground floor (accessability).the highrise privatizes itself from the rigid 500m long horizontal strip, guiding the visitor at his arrival of the island as beacon.
To give the massive highrise a slender look, the mass has been subdivided in two materials (brick and wood). By integrating the balconies into the mass of the building a slender and differentiated building arises. The brick pattern is a ‘spekkoek’ of two bricks. rough-smooth.

“Is it possible to crack the existing typology of the 5.4m terrace house?”
Is it possible to create more spatial qualities within the strict square meter boundaries and sizes? Can we make more out of the circulation space than the stuffy 1.1m passage?
Can we make a terrace house an experience, a discovery of light and view….

ZWIJG IN DE ZON
De zonnecel is een verrijking voor de stad. Niet alleen energetisch maar nu ook esthetisch. ZWIJG is een nieuw type beeldmerk. Een victorie van duurzaamheid. En dat mag gezien worden…
“Build me a small house, that can be built and demounted in one week by only two people and no heavy equipment. Make sure it fits in a seacontainer, so it can be shipped everywhere.”
Spain The design is based on a timberframe construction.The ground floor is raised one meter from the earth. After the columns, beams and floors are built, the façade can easily be placed. By separating the serving spaces (toilet, shower,water, electricity,kitchen) from the living space, a beautiful ‘zen’ space is formed. The living area is extended with a porch on all sides, bridging the gap to nature.

“Uncertainty is the only certainty we have got.”
A new hospital for Den Helder. 25.000m2 (future expansion 10.000m2) AND 600 parking spaces. A contrasting assignment. The rational hospital (the efficient ‘factory’) versus the emotional, the well-being of the client. How do you unite this apparent contrast?
A hospital will change, so let’s make two ultimately flexible, changeable expandable walls. And create a soft in between where where the humane touch comes through….
