BIG and Barcode Architects have been selected as the winning team in a competition to design a new mixed-use building in the emerging district of IJburg Steigereiland in Amsterdam. To be known as Sluishuis (Lock House), the building will serve as a new icon connecting the neighborhood to Amsterdam’s historic center while providing 380 zero-energy residences, 4,000 square meters of commercial and public space, and a marina with space for up to 30 houseboats.

As part of the masterplan, ‘Bassin a Flots’ designed by ANMA/Nicolas Michelin, Barcode Architects and Habiter Autrement recently presented the Pôle de Compétences (Center for New Businesses). The 7,000m2 project will be a part of the masterplan, which aims on a phased transformation of the present introvert industrial harbor area into a new lively precinct with an urban mixture of living, working, and recreation. The slender 90 meter long and 21 meter tall building presents itself as a pure monolith volume stretching out over the entire length of the site. More images and architects’ description after the break.
