Parkrand building, Amsterdam - MVRDV with Richard Hutten
Buurt Ne9en, is located in the western garden cities of Amsterdam. There is plenty of public space available but most of these green spaces lack grandeur. The project can be regarded as a 'key-operation within the urban renewal of Geuzeveld-Slotermeer. The building should provide an iconographic quality to the neighbourhood which was lacking before.
The proposed building is situated at the edge of a park and consists of 5 towers, positioned on a deck, carrying a two level roof plate. The towers are positioned in such a way that they do not block views from the neighbourhood to the park, but that also as many apartments as possible enjoy a view over the park. In this way a large scale but open and airy block is formed. On top of the first level deck, a semi-public open air 'living room' is created which can be seen as a supplement to the park.
The complex contains three so-called outdoor rooms. Richard Hutten designed a children’s room, a living room and a dining room. These are spaces where residents can rest between the private domain of the home and the public park.
