Text description provided by the architects. The district offces of ZuiderAmstel, Amsterdam will be the face of an ensemble of mixed-use residential and offce buildings. As a result, the area will be lively for most of the day.

The project consists of two L-shaped buildings that embrace a courtyard. The volume containing the offces offers shelter for the residential block. A parking garage is situated underneath the building and is accessible from the side of the Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Centre. In this way the residential neighbourhood is not burdened by extra car traffc.The architecture of the ensemble, bordering the Zuidas planning area, combines contemporary urban allure with self-evident simplicity.

The offices floors are shells that can be flexibly subdivided according to more individual needs, allowing a greater durability to the building as opposed to a more specific type of use.

Contrasting to the public, street-facing facades, the inner facades have relatively smaller openings, to allow more privacy for the inhabitants. The white stuccoed facades facing the court yard suggest a ‘ton sur ton’ effect with the bark structure of the birches that will be planted there.
