PREFACE This small book contains the four projects that Iâ€™ve done in the (pre-)master track of the TU Delft. It shows four spreads per project that outline the global concept and ideas as well as the final products. The main goal is to preserve these projects in a compact way but this also makes it easy to present it as a portfolio. I hope that whoever reads this will enjoy it and gets a glimpse of my personal approach towards architectural design. Furthermore I would like to thank all my teachers and tutors during both my master and bachelor courses for helping me to reach this point. Jannick van â€˜t Ende June 2016

Hello! I am Jannick, a master student in architecture currently finishing my graduation project. Originally trained to be an engineer I’ve always had a strong desire to become an architect and combine design with modern techniques to help build towards a sustainable future. In my work this is notable in the tendancy to create integral designs using installations and technology to help shape the architecture. In this booklet I will introduce some of my design projects and show you my personal approach.
EXPERIENCE Volunteer with ACE / September 2013 – December 2013 ACE stands for American Conservation Experience. It is a non-profit organisation that helps keeping American national parks in a good condition. The work I have done with them is restoration of hiking trails all around California, USA. Intern at ARX Architects / September 2012 – February 2013 I have worked on many different projects ranging from small residential buildings to big apartment blocks and community centers. Tasks included making concept drawings, presentations and finalising technical documents for the construction site. Intern at Frans Sturkenboom / November 2010 - February 2011 Designed a dwelling as a suggested addition to a residence project that was in early development under guidance of the architect. Intern at Slokker Bouwgroep / August 2010 – November 2010 Assisting the executor on the construction site of a medium sized building project. Apart from organising & the building process a lot was learned about the practical aspects of construction.

Graduation Studio Amsterdam-West Amsterdam, The Netherlands June, 2016
The neighbourhood of Landlust in Amsterdam-West has many problems on various scales. The block of The Koningsvrouwen forms the centre in which redevelopment seeks to revitalise the area. Built in 1936 it is now a state monument. A mix of architectural, technical and social interventions will have to tackle current issues and turn Landlust into a vibrant community. that once again is worthy of its place in the history of Amsterdam.
Docklands Vertical School Melbourne, Victoria, Australia June 11, 2015
For the ever growing Australian city of Melbourne space in the central area is running out. There is a direct need of a new primary school resulting in new experimenting with vertical layering and new solutions for learning spaces. The project attempts to close off the students from the hostile surrounding urban area and follows the shape of the highway that passes by, this shape is also part of the sustainability concept.
THE SODA FACTORY

Project Location Date
The Soda Factory Schiedam, The Netherlands January 13, 2015
The Sodafactory consists of two old warehouses in Schiedam where soda was crystallized. The locals prevented the demolishing claiming the buildings should be protected. For the symbolic amount of one euro the two buildings and ground were sold to an architecture firm that wishes to restore the building. For the restoration of the buildings a whole new plan has to be made, starting with an analysis.
The New Kunsthal Rotterdam, The Netherlands June 27, 2014
In Rotterdam there currently sits the existing kunsthal by Rem Koolhaas and his firm OMA. For this project the assumption was made that this building would burn down and had to be replaced by a new public building featuring the same program. The new design uses the founding principles of the original but focuses on creating a pleasant and interesting route within.

LIVING LANDLUST PROJECT: Heritage & Housing - Amsterdam West LOCATION: Amsterdam, The Netherlands DATE: June 15, 2016 DURATION: 2 Semesters - Graduation Studio
01 The buildings known as The Koningsvrouwen of Landlust in Amsterdam-West will turn eighty years this year as they’ve been constructed in 1936. Designed by B. Merkelbach (1901-61) and C. Karsten (1904-79) the most northern block forms the base for this project, together with the similar neighbouring blocks it will soon earn state monument status rather than the current municipal monument protection. Originally designed as social housing they still hold the same function to this day, the demographic of users however has shifted over the years. What has also changed is the condition of the building itself, or rather - the expectations regarding modern living. This graduation project aims to investigate what it takes to provide for ‘modern comforts’ and how they could be applied in The Koningsvrouwen of Landlust. The way people dwell nowadays and therefore the demands they have for their residence changed a great deal. In the 1990s a renovation was made in an attempt to improve the condition, in the process however the original aesthetic was lost. This new large scale redevelopment will restore these authentic qualities while also implementing the latest techniques and products, bringing the comforts of a new building. The social situation in Landlust also forms a main theme in the project as the current public realm does not suit the diverse group of residents. The proposed design suggests turning Landlust into a vibrant community earning the name - Living Landlust.

Research & concept The thematic research and value analysis pointed out that the front faĂ§ades have to be preserved while the interior and courtyard can be altered. Social qualities in Landlust are also lacking and therefore the public realm should be integrated in the new design. The concept has three layers; the urban scale that wants to create interaction, the scale of the block aims to generate cohesion and the dwellings themselves in which a villaâ€™s comfort is the goal.

Parking spaces and usable garden spaces in the courtyard give reason for usage and will help neighbours meet rather than dividing them. A new rear faรงade offers the dwellings more floor area but also connects the interior and exterior visually.

Sustainability & comfort In order to provide climatic comforts while preserving the front faรงade a thick layer of insulation is added according to the principles of the passive-house concept. This technique combined with a balanced ventilation system and new, more sustainable systems such as geothermal storage, a heat exchanger and optional solar installations on the roof make for a high energetic sustainability potential.

Possible interior (type 1&2) A new functional dwelling Removing some of the existing structural walls and replacing the deteriorated wood floors allows for a whole new construction. A new steel floor allows for an open floor plan and easy implementation of modern installations. The central hallway is considered of monumental value and was reinterpreted to fit all wet zones and other installations. This means the remaining space can be used as desired by the users and their respective culture. Both the spaces on the front and rear of the dwelling can be used to dwell or sleep, allowing both sides of the building to show activity during all times of the day.

Vertical School Docklands Melbourne, Victoria, Australia June 11, 2015 1 Semester - Msc2
As the centre of Melbourne continues to grow denser every year the demand for schools increases too. The existing primary schools surrounding the Central Business District (CBD) are overcrowded with students and need relief. There are only few sites still available for development and all require to be creative with the available space. The goal of the studio is to research and experiment with a vertical orientation of primary schools and contemporary learning spaces. Following the edge of the site, the form of the new school encases a central landscape, blocking off undesirable noise from the adjacent Wurunjeri Way and creating a safe harbour where students can learn and play freely. In section, the faรงade is an extension of the existing slope. An adjoining daycare centre, gym and swimming pool, open to the public, form a hub that will serve the community of Docklands.

Spatial relations Sustainability The building is fully integrated with sustainable technology and passive design choices. It uses a passive air conditioning system with a climate cascade and a solar chimney and if necessary will reheat or cool using geothermal energy. Unwanted heating is prevented by the insulated slope and louvres facing north as well as the use of green roofs on the terraces. Indirect daylight is maximised by using openings toward the south. Additional features include systems like solar panels and solar collectors integrated within the solar chimneys.

Layering of functions The concept teaching method is based on creating spaces for various sizes. Small reading nooks are placed in the north faรงade with group size increasing when moving towards the inner courtyard. Offering these spaces allow varied teaching methods that can be customised for students and will always offer them a pleasant environment.

Learning environments The learning spaces have been divided into different wings on the various levels, each belonging different year groups, where each group has their own personal room but also a shared area for work in bigger groups. All shared areas and selected rooms are in direct relation to an exterior terrace only separated by foldable walls to stimulate the use of the stair element on the outside for outdoor learning. All these grouped learning environments are linked by a central atrium that facilitates all shared functions such as a library, art studios, computer rooms and a canteen. This central void not only binds the school in terms of function but also allows for interaction and sight through the whole building for easy way finding.

SODA FACTORY PROJECT: LOCATION: DATE: DURATION:
The Soda Factory Schiedam, The Netherlands January 13, 2015 1 Semester - Msc1
03 Schiedam has a rich history, part of which is the production of gin that used to take place there. For this reason a lot of windmills and warehouses existed in the area and can still be found. The Soda factory consists of two of these warehouses, the wide one is called Lijfland and the lower one is Coerlandt. After serving as a storage they became a location where soda was manufactured from 1894 to 1976. The date of construction is estimated to be around 1800 but the production of soda helped quicken the deterioration process of the construction. The wooden beams and columns absorbed the airbourne salts which eventually led to large outcrops of salt on the construction, giving it a very unique aesthetic. Some remnants of the production process also remain, large storage tanks and other machineries still sit in the building allowing for unique design solutions.

Aerial situation The existing & analysis As shown in these images the physical condition of the warehouses is very poor but also has a lot of character. The typical construction of thick loadbearing walls and wooden beams has deteriorated greatly by warping and showing outcrops of salt but should be able to still support a new function. After a shared research process into the functions of the city and neighbourhood a need for flexible office space was found.

The new concept In order to preserve the unique properties of the building a boxin-box construction will be made. By doing so the existing walls do not have to be altered or restored while climatic needs are met. These buffer spaces are further used for modern installations, most notably of which are the solar chimneys that suggest the image of an actual factory.

Fuctional layout The soda factory houses office spaces of various shapes and sizes to allow for maximal flexibility. Both Lijfland and Coerlandt have a staircase and in the space between a slope is placed together with an elevator for complete accessibility. The space with the silos has become a meeting hall showcasing the authentic qualities the building has to offer. The front building houses a small restaurant as well as a small scale rental service to bring activity to the site during the weekends.

Spatial qualities The east facade facing river The Schie will receive a restorative approach, highlighting the two separate buildings and their large openings. The north and south facades will be augmented to allow more daylight to come inside as well as providing for vistas over the river. These facades also have the solar chimneys attached that bring the modern industrial look to the building. The interior however is focused on maintaining the original qualities of the wooded construction and the steel machineries.

Bay window details - 1:10 Since this project is crowd funded the detailing has to remain simple, a basic steel construction can be placed in new openings that connects to the existing structure. The connection with the exterior wall does not need thermal insulation because of the box-in-box principle that is used.

The New Kunsthal Rotterdam, The Netherlands June 27, 2014 6 Weeks - Premaster
04 This project assumes the current â€˜Kunsthalâ€™ by OMA burns down and will be replaced by a new exposition hall. It was up to the student to decide whether it was worth preserving original elements of the original design or completely reinterpret the building. An analysis of building was made both in groups and individual to aid in the choices between preservation or a new construction. The latter was often the case for this project, using some of the original functional qualities in a new building that aesthetically shows for a complete different structure. The emphasis is with the creation of flexible halls and using light to give spaces unique properties. Both the construction and the installation system are used to support the central concept leading to an unique and integral design.

Analysis & concept An analysis of the existing building revealed the best qualities and main concept in the design. The most typical element is the public walkway that cuts straight through. This path connects to the dike in a perpendicular way, making for an odd route for pedestrians. The shell of a christmas beetle will form the concept for the redesign, with its three parts divided by a path. Its thick shell houses a living and dynamic environment inside.
Design & experimenting To shape and mold the design many experiments were done with different methods. The orginal concept was a bold and simple statement that allowed for a lot of freedom in the interior. Because the shell of the building had to become as thick large installations and constructions could be integrated with the design. The faรงades are angled and covered with panels to mimic the shell of the beetle, the panels on the roof however are solar panels and collectors. The total surface area of the roof is big enough to easily supply the building itself but possibly also the neighbouring structures. Ligh ting con cep t

Routing & wayfinding The routing for every function and hall leads around or passes by the central atrium, from this central point the user can see all other halls and spaces for easy navigating. To further simplify the wayfinding only one main route exists between exposition spaces with smaller shortcuts that are more secluded. Because the building becomes wider with every level the size of these floors becomes increasingly bigger too, allowing for a wider atrium. Having the atrium become larger with its height allows for sculptures to be hung in this space but also brings in more light from the skylight that is placed in the roof of the building.

Daylight entering the building
Integral design & light The construction of the building represents the skeleton of the building, giving the user a sense of scale in the large halls. These long elements also allow for the climate and lighting system to be integrated making it truly the living element of the structure. Additional openings in the faรงades allow for daylight to fall into the halls. As seen in the section and detail these two halls benefit from the light in different ways, while the light in the hall above comes in at knee level and flows over the floor the lower hall receives this light from between the ribs. This difference in lighting gives each hall unique properties that can benefit certain scales and types of exhibitions.
