From the architect. The new premises of the Academic Centre for Dentistry is situated on the ambitious Southern Axis development corridor (Zuidas), in full view of the A10 motorway. The center consists of a seven-story base above which hovers a block of laboratories.

Site Plan
Site Plan

The first two floors are rendered as a transparent plinth with an open character. A large cantilever shelters the entrance zone, whose illuminated open-air ceiling emphasizes its height creating an inviting ambience. Inside, beneath the floor tilting in two directions of the double-height lecture hall, is a large public information desk. The central well, around which all functions are organized, is a vibrant hub pulling everything together.

A basic graphic pattern of stripes applied to the glazing of the facade gives a surprising Moiré effect: the building's look changes with the angle of observation and the weather conditions. The restaurant in the transparent intermediary zone can be seen from a great distance and itself offers a spectacular view across Amsterdam.

We have seen more and more stunning projects of late from Dutch Architects. They are really starting to raise the bar for other nations.

Why an island? The first 2 floors don't seem to be as transparant as written to be... The cantilever doesn't capture the context, it brings space to the interior.
The rest of the building is really nice, don't have anything against it and it seems well executed. But the connection with the direct context is not there and there are getting to be too many buildings like that. Islands in hard contexts, blocks on deserts. It was nice as a change, but it starts to be a bore about now.

Another cool example of great Dutch architecture.
Unpretentious, efficient and stylish. Architecture of the 21st century indeed...
