Competition entry for the development of mixed-use buildings on a unique strip in Zuidas.
The brief called for a design that establishes itself within the rapidly developing context of the Kop Zuidas district, a highly accessible site and hub for future developments. Envisioned for multi-tenant use, the proposed buildings combine a mix of housing, offices and facilities, with the additional aim of engaging its surroundings through a lively plinth.
In essence, the building challenges people to move and meet within it, through the sharing of numerous living and working typologies that also connect with the neighbourhood. An expansive courtyard allows possibilities for air, light and landscape, creating a building to facilitate personal and professional growth, along with upgrades in housing.
