KCAP Architects & Planners has won the competition for the design of “Punt de Sniep,” an urban planning project in Diemen, a city in the agglomeration of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Overall, the project will consist of 165 apartments, a marina, and commercial and gastronomy functions over a total of 16,000 square meters. The Punt de Sniep area is located in the center of Diemen surrounded by two canals to which all buildings will have a direct connection. In an effort to build a sense of community, the spaces between the buildings will be made into three public areas: Sniephof will feature a semi-public courtyard, Sniephaven will be a marina for recreation and a harbor for small boats, and Puntsniep—the tip of the peninsula—will become the area’s main square that connects via pedestrian bridge to the historic center of Diemen.
