Community Centre, Amsterdam [NL]

Project: Zandpad Community Centre
Location: Amsterdam [NL]
Year: 2014
Client: Stichting Zandpad
Phase: Preliminary Design

The small community centre consists of three spaces: a daycare, space for activities for elderly and a youth club. The centre is directly owned and run by the local community and is part of a small playground. The three houses characterize the interaction and dialogue with the different users and enabling the community members to come together and socialize and most of all to have fun. Furthermore we think every architect should design a tree house in his or her career at least once 🙂

Scandal-E Store Interior Amsterdam [NL]

Project: Scandal-E Store Interior
Location: Amsterdam [NL]
Year: 2011-2012
Client: Scandal{e} Store
Phase: Built

Located in the heart of Amsterdam, Scandal{e} is a creative space where the hair salon, its additional exhibition room and concept store form one creative space.
To re-activate the ambivalent spaces to its specific program, an elevated circle is designed that pierces through all spaces and construction. The circle connects these spaces but also adds its own private space/world/dressing-room of which you are the centre. In addition, the circle acts as a rod for curtains or showcase for clothes and products.
Furthermore, the wall in the back of the hair salon is designed as a ‘wall of drawers’, a composition of re-used steel drawers and lockers from the ’30s – ’70s.
