Sluishuis, Amsterdam, NL

The solitary building marks the entrance to Amsterdams ‘IJburg’ district and functions as a social condenser for the new residential neighbourhood. The programme comprises several facilities and differentiated housing types whilst the structure of the building is designed to allow differentiation and future changes in the programme.
The appearance of the building is very ‘solid’, while gashes in one direction of its mass create an ensemble of blocks and towers. They are situated around a landscaped inner courtyard open to various types of activities.
