EX-CASA 400 Housing | selection phase to construction | Amsterdam VMX Architects | 2011 - 2014

Ex-CASA 400 is an urban redevelopment which consists of the re-use of an existing student hotel (CASA 400) and a new residential tower in an area called “Eenhoorngebied” in the East of Amsterdam, close to the Amstel station. The starting point for this redevelopment was to turn it into a mixed living and working area. The municipality proposed the urban planning framework. A distinctive part of this urban planning was to create closed building blocks and a green axis, running from the northern Ringdijk diagonally through the area. In the preliminary design phase it was unanimously decided

to reuse the hull of the existing CASA 400 for 343 student residences. A gate in the existing building was made in order to continue the green axis of the urban plan and nearly all entrances to the apartments were situated there. The on-site restaurant in the building was retained. Along the Gooiseweg, a major entrance to Amsterdam, a new tower will be realised for about 130 starter homes. This triangular tower also marks the spot where the green axis of the urban plan for the “Eenhoorngebied” borders the Kamerlingh Onneslaan.

MAX HAVELAAR SCHOOL Secondary school | selection phase to construction | Hoogvliet VMX Architects | 2010 - 2012

Education is strongly focused on the individual student at a training college. A small and safe environment is of great importance for this particular target group. The expansion for the Accent Vocational Centre that is based on this idea. The first phase of this multi-year development consisted of a compact two-storey building containing all the practice rooms (such as an engineering workshop, beauty salon and shop) In order to simulate real workplace conditions as closely as possible, these areas are furnished as workspaces and not as neutral classrooms. This is also visible in the facade through

the large shop windows along the street and high industrial doors that lead to the outdoor workshop (used for construction activities). Offices, staff and creative workspaces are situated on the upper level, where the light mainly enters through skylights. This aluminium-finished storey sits crown-like on the glass lower level. With its transparent ground floor, this building explicitly relates to its environment. Its large garage doors practically turn it into an outdoor school where the students – although still completing their education - already find themselves in the middle of society so to speak.

GA TERMINAL SCHIPHOL Terminal | preliminary design to construction | Schiphol Amsterdam VMX Architects | 2007 - 2011

This building is a new GA Terminal for Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. GA (General Aviation) is the international name for private and business flights. The new GA Terminal is located in Schiphol-Oost, along the GA platform. The benefit of General Aviation is reaching the airplane almost directly, without waiting lines and with optimal privacy to those who need it (royal families, head of states or celebrities). The design maximises this benefit by bringing the passenger and the plane together as closely as possible. On landside the passengers are dropped off inside the building, sheltering them from rain, wind or cameras. On Airside the canopy gives this same comfort while boarding the airplane. Above the terminal there are office spaces for aviation related companies, underneath is a

parking garage for passengers as well as employees. The shape of the building provides extra privacy by using the canopy on airside to limit the view onto boarding passengers but allowing light to come into the offices and on landside by directing the view of the offices upwards to the sky instead of downwards to arriving passengers. The faรงade is finished with a silver polyester plate that has a silver sparkle. The silver makes the building fit in with its surrounding buildings (since gray and black are the most used colours at Schiphol Airport). The sparkle however differentiates the building from the rest and makes it unique. Along the platform the pink faรงade forms a neon like line to set the building apart further and accentuate its public function.

HAVENKWARTIER

+

Urban renewal & housing | Europan 12 competition, finalist | Assen In collaboration with L. Rezbarikova and S. Fallahi | June 28 2013

Havenkwartier + is a transformation strategy for the former harbour of Assen. The site is currently a mono-functional and underused business park with a harbour that has lost its function. Our strategy aims to transform the site into a new lively urban mixed-use neighbourhood for working, living, cultural activities, social events, recreation and experiments.

mix new programme & people and to add living qualities. For a successful transformation you need the right tools to make it work. In our proposal we have categorized them into three groups, each with a specific purpose. We use tools for Activation, tools for Mixing and tools to add Living Qualities. Havenkwartier + is about introducing new people to the site, bringing them together and building for communities. Present people should be invited to participate or reinvent their position on the site. The first new people (1st generation) will be pioneers that have a direct connection to the site and are adventurous by nature making them ideal for pioneering. The second group (2nd generation) follows in the footsteps of the pioneers; already the site will be more mixed, lively and liveable. This makes it suitable for additional, more traditional, groups of people. The third group follows in the same way; the more facilities and liveable the site becomes the more diverse groups it attracts.

The plan follows on an existing masterplan which today is not feasible to develop in the traditional way (meaning all at once), our plan is based on a gradual transformation process which has no fixed timeframe or outcome. The city also planned two largescale interventions: the new City Boulevard and a new Blue Axis (reconnected canal for recreational water route through the city). Our proposal uses small steps, making the plan more flexible (order of the steps), more feasible (based on demand) and more adaptable (in time). The steps are meant to activate the site, to

MIAMI PIER MUSEUM Museum | competition | Miami USA organised by Arquitectum | June 4 2009

The Miami Pier Museum is located at the end of Fifth Avenue on South Beach Miami. The Pier Museum commemorates the Latin American immigrants who came to the city from the 60’s to the 80’s in search of a better future. Personal effects, souvenirs and photos belonging to this generation of immigrants will be exhibited. Next to exhibitions the Museum also has a social and educational agenda supported by an auditorium, library, Multi Use Room (MUR) and cafeteria. The starting point for this design is the unique geographic location on South Beach that allows the Museum to function as a Pier as well. While the Museum commemorates the immigrants who have arrived on these shores, the Pier creates a panoramic route out onto the ocean. By precisely aligning this route with 5th Avenue and extending it from the observation deck above

the Museum to the beachfront the design aims to optimize the connections between the Museum and South Beach. The entrance level is positioned along the route to the beachfront and directly accessible from the observation deck. This level is optimized to invite visitors in, stimulate interaction between different visitors and create panoramic views out onto the ocean. From the main hall visitors descend one level to where the exhibition loop starts, leading them through the exhibitions (permanent and temporary) and commemorative spaces. Contrary to the panoramic level above, this one is almost completely under sea level receiving indirect light only. This creates intimate and flexible exhibition spaces that focus on the memories of those who came to Miami in search of the American Dream.

O.M. OFFICE BUILDING Office building | preliminary & final design | Lelystad Government Building Agency | May 13 2005

Near the city centre of Lelystad a new office building has been realised for the Public Prosecution Service (O.M.). Together with the Courthouse and the Children and Family Court Advisory and Support Service it forms a cluster of judicial buildings. The building has five floors and a footprint of 18 by 43 meters. The faรงade is a grid that is 3.6 by 3.6 meters and made of black perforated steel plates. Behind the vertical lines of the grid there are hatches for natural ventilation and behind the horizontal lines of the grid all

the installations such as air ducts, data, and electricity are placed. The grid is disrupted on the front by the main entrance, on the back by the service entrance and on the fifth floor by a balcony. The building has no lowered ceilings; the internal walls solve acoustics. In comparison to a traditional office this one is 45% more energy efficient due to the double faรงade, heating and cooling provided through the concrete floors and storing the surplus of heat into the ground underneath the building.

MINISTER’S WING Interior | preliminary design | The Hague Government Building Agency | March 11 2004

The Ministry of Transport, Public Works and Water Management commissioned The Government Building Agency for a new interior of the Ministers wing in their existing building. The current interior has relatively small rooms and an unpractical setup. The new interior offers larger, lighter rooms for all staff members. Because every room (work space, meeting room or hallway) has its own walls of glass, wood or white plasterwork they are always

experienced as separate rooms. The spaces in-between the walls vary in size and can be used for different purposes like art displays or secret passageways. The head secretary who redirects all visitors to the meeting room or office that they need to visit occupies the central room. It also functions as the main entrance for visitors, a waiting room and a central space that can be used for special events.

LIZZY & OKURA Urban plan and extension Hotel Okura | Amsterdam graduation project AvBA | June 8 2006

The Lizzy Ansingh neighbourhood and the Okura Hotel, located in Amsterdam South, form the plan area of my graduation project. The area has very high contrasts in users, typologies and programmes. The plan area has a children’s farm, an international top hotel, an elderly home, social housing and a sports hall. This unique mixture has developed itself over a course of 80 years, by diverse plans that each time were completely different than its predecessors or because they have only partly been realised. In the current situation all blocks are turned away from each other, which leaves the borders without much spatial qualities. The new urban plan consists of growth within the plan area, with preservation of the high contrasts. A new street plan forms the base filled with 7 blocks of which 2 exist, 2 will be upgraded

and 3 will be new. The new street plan searches for connections to the surrounding urban plan designed by H.P. Berlage (Plan South 1917), the blocks themselves however have their own typology and height to go with it. Block 7 is the extension of the existing Okura Hotel that doubles the capacity of the hotel. The design consists of a new tower placed directly next to the existing one, keeping the iconic value of having one tower but upgrading it with more programme. The hotel has 5 terraces for the public functions of the hotel; in between these will be the guest rooms and the conference centre. Every terrace has its own theme that is linked to the programme and the terrace’s height (from street level to the height of the new skyline of Amsterdam).

Q’PAZ: URBAN EXCHANGE Information pavilions | La Paz, Bolivia P6 AvBA & Universidad Catolica de La Paz | May 26 2004

La Paz, the capitol of Bolivia is situated on 3500 meters above sea level in between the Andean high planes and the Amazon rain forests. A valley forms the border between the high planes on one side and the steep slopes going down to the Amazon on the other. The radical geography dictates the growth of the city into a linear structure. The Line of La Paz follows the Choqueyapu River that runs through the valley; it starts on the edge of the high planes in the former suburb El Alto and goes down more than 500 meters into the warmer valley down south. The Line, formed by history and geography, provides La Paz with its unique character. It is where everything comes together. With everything and everyone coming together on this line, congestion is something that occurs daily. New infrastructural models for La Paz would kill

The Line and the life of the city. However by articulating or altering it La Paz will maintain its unique character. This scenario will look for the qualities and potentials of the linear city, instead of seeing it as a problem. There are three strategies to alter The Line: adding new types of lines along the current, articulating the different zones it crosses or implementing new points along it to interact with. The Urban Exchange is a family of 7 points that collect specifities from their surroundings to make them accessible to others. The points add a new network of information to the linear city. They function as navigation points for different users of the city, in their own or a new area. The objects also take on the role of urban furniture, which interacts with their surroundings. They create informal meeting points for the different users of the city.

A SPACE ODYSSEY Casino | Amsterdam P6 AvBA | June 6 2003

This is a design for a casino of 9,000m2 on a parking lot between the RAI and Amsterdam South. A casino is a closed environment that attempts to keep its visitors inside as long as possible to maximize their playtime. The connection to the outside world is limited as much as possible, so that the visitors are unaware of the time and change of day to night outside. The visitors enter a completely different world, where dimensions and experience of space are unlike those of the outside world; in this casino there is no difference between the three dimensions. By dividing it in sub compartments a network is formed that also works as one continuous space.

The space in-between is used for supporting functions (staff and supplies) and four main cores. From these cores it is possible for staff to enter any sub compartment directly without passing others. The inside world of the casino is an odyssey for its visitors, where they travel through the sub compartments of the network along different games, restaurants, bars and gardens (Odyssey = ‘A long wandering or voyage usually marked by many changes of fortune’). The sub compartments (rhombicubocthedron) are deformed in a way that together they create a casino landscape.
