This spring, Amsterdam hosts the EU. On the Marineterrein, politicians discuss and decide on Europe’s future, under full observation. In reaction, at the nearby temporary campus FabCity, Studioninedots and StoneCycling built a pavilion with a fireplace right in the heart of it. Because a good campfire triggers storytelling, everyone is invited to sit down, relax and share warming, unreasonable, crazy, unimaginable and hilarious ideas.
In the coming years, the 3.5-hectare Lucent site in Hilversum will be transformed into a vibrant new mixed-use residential/commercial development. De Alliantie needed a new headquarters to unite its various regional offices to become more efficient and customer-friendly. Being in good condition the four-storey office building was retained, however, renovations were required for its new function.
For this landmark located between the IJ and Tolhuiskanaal, we designed two slim towers that merge underneath into a podium with terraced apartments instead of one huge, solid volume.
Kop Grasweg forms the southernmost part of Buiksloterham, Amsterdam North. This whole area is currently being developed into a sustainable neighbourhood for living and working.
Hollowing out a simple rectangular volume at strategic positions resulted in a dynamic and open floor plan. The building’s sculptural volume features curved transparent walls that afford warped perspectives and unexpected panoramic views, and draw light in beautifully. Construction starts May 2016.
Studioninedots is now building the design that won an invited competition for a 9.300m2 office building in Paris. The site Lot Ya is beautifully located near the Seine right in front of L'île Seguin à Boulogne-Billancourt. Promising teams and well-established architects such as Jean Nouvel, Dominique Perrault, KCAP, LAN and Baumshlager&Eberle contribute to the development of this area.
As a third project on Zeeburgereiland, Studioninedots designed Block 29A. The building with a length of 134 meters is prominently situated at the gateway to Amsterdam. It is located at the IJburglaan, right in front of the entrance of the Piet Hein tunnel.
The location of the villa is special. This diamond shaped plot lies at the tip of the island surrounded by water with spectacular views over the park. We started with an abstract concrete volume that follows the form of the site. Due to its shape, the building will be experienced differently from every side. Sometimes narrow and sharp. Sometimes massive and wide.
At this moment the Lelylaan Station area can only be experienced as an infrastructural hub. This given situation provides the motive for a both specific and large-scale addition to the area that is of greater importance than to its plot only. Extensive residential amenities and apartments for students and young professionals offer opportunities for social interaction, for a welcoming and lively destination.
The competition winning Wisselspoor masterplan is to transform an 11-acres site to a sustainable urban working and living area. The integration of the existing railway heritage with a new modern cultural and social life adds a new dynamic urban environment with a strong identity to the center of Utrecht.
Studioninedots designed block 1a and 1b, located at the north corner of Zeeburgereiland. The site of the former sewage purification plant is turning into a completely new urban area. An area with approximately 6.000 houses and district related facilities.
The plot is located besides a large shunting yard. How to transform an area with these noise conditions into a good quality living environment?
The construction of the sturdy blocks B1 and B15 marks the start of the realisation of Cityplot in Buiksloterham, Amsterdam Noord. Studioninedots launched this innovative development strategy, and the design and construction of the first circular, flexible and smart apartment buildings forms the ultimate test case for the architect and commissioner de Alliantie.
From September 26 on the apartments in Block 15 - a.k.a. Kaai#01 – are for sale.
The project comprises a new work environment converted from an existing office building that is shared by individual entrepreneurs. The communal nature of this new social work space drives the identity of the new building.
Studioninedots' design for the Ertskade forms the last piece of the puzzle as part of Sporenburg Island's masterplan. This residential project is designed with utmost sensitivity to its surroundings. The highest point of the building will be situated on the water, the furthest point from the existing houses. The stepped form of the building increases from low rise dwellings to the corner tower. Importantly, the football field that currently occupies the vacant site will be retained and complemented with additional community facilities.
STUDIONINEDOTS and DELVA Landscape Architects present the dynamic masterplan Buiksloterham, commissioned by housing corporation de Alliantie. Through an innovative urban, landscape and social development plan, the former Nedcoat and Air Products sites in the harbour area of Buiksloterham will be regenerated in a sustainable way.
The Oosterdokseiland (ODE) in Amsterdam is to be rebuilt with a large scale development that includes housing, offices, a hotel, a library, a conservatorium, shops, bars and restaurants. The masterplan specifies that the scheme's functions must be physically separated from each other - one block, one function.
Studioninedots completes the innovative school at Zeeburgereiland. The concept "New schools, housing on demand" integrates solutions both on urban and building scale, to prevent expensive temporary emergency facilities and to address new urban planning strategies.
Studioninedots has unveiled its design for Gershwin plot 13&15 located at the very heart of Zuidas. Gershwin is the first mixed area in Zuidas, where people work and live alongside one another. The thrusting residential and office towers and the variety of facilities on offer create a cosmopolitan atmosphere found nowhere else in Amsterdam.
Besides the well-known brands such as Mercedes and Porsche, Stuttgart is also famous for its technical and innovative Universities. The increasing number of students, creates a growing demand for student housing in this region. Can we gradually transform and densify the existing urban fabric, without losing the current qualities?
On a strip next to the Rhein a beautiful plot is reserved for a business center of approximately 34.000 m2.
How to create five high-quality office buildings on a relatively small strip, where all buildings have equivalent premium views and individual qualities?
Studioninedots presented the first images of the study for Leisure & Culture Center Rheinlehne, located close to Basel. This building plays an important role in a large strip that will be development along the Rhein.
Cityplot © arose from the need to reconsider conventional urban planning strategies to open up more flexible models of development. This forms part of a larger challenge to address how urban strategies could be designed to be more receptive and able to change over times.
Studioninedots wins student housing competition for TU Delft Campus. By invitation of housing-corporation DUWO, we made a conceptual design for 140 permanent student housing at the TU Delft campus. The project parameters were to design a volume of 67 meters long and 5 storeys high, the building should have its own strong identity and a collective space on the roof. Another requirement was to have rain water harvesting on the roof as well.
Lammenschans is located in the southern part of the city of Leiden. The site is an isolated area between access roads and railroad tracks and currently contains industrial functions. We analyzed the existing urban fabric of a typical, historically grown block of Leiden to create a new type of building block: the intensive Cityplot.
Villa Groothof is situated in the beautiful surroundings of the province of Gelderland. Each side of the plot has unique qualities and stunning views to the surrounding landscape.
Second round, ongoing. Tennis club Milano Alberto Bonacossa has become a green oasis in the vast growing city. Can we keep this green void in the growing city development and turn it into a special quality for the surroundings and Milan?
