Combining entrepreneurship with affordable housing, West Beat is the winning project for a creative complex in Nieuw-West, Amsterdam. The building proposal, created by Studioninedots in collaboration with Lingotto was inspired by the elements of light and sound, with each design choice reacting to the surrounding environment.

Studioninedots and Lingotto are proud to have won the tender for an iconic new building on Lelylaan, Amsterdam with our design that has a collective ‘Super Space’ as its heart, states the press release.

Elegantly constructed with arches, the "super space" (the bottom floor of the structure) remains open — allowing for a mixed-use facility. Moreover, the arches frame the multiplicity of activities available in the open-space, showcasing the building's ground floor.

The height of the complex was determined by sound measurements, ensuring that the top floor sequesters the inner courtyard from noisy traffic. Outdoor and shared spaces are located on the sun-facing side of the building.

With a total of 150 apartments that overlook a raised courtyard, residents have the option of three outdoor spaces: the Podium courtyard, the elevated garden, and the living gallery directly in front of the apartments. To produce a green aesthetic, the north facade niches have glass walls with copious plants placed on them (also acting as a buffer zone).

In addition to the shared spaces, the complex will also include a gym, terraces, and a collective garden. The project won the approval from the City of Amsterdam with its concept and commitment to sustainability. 

In this context Studioninedots sees an increasing need for better collective spaces and public spaces. Its architecture creates characteristic spatial interventions on dense urban sites that function as catalysts for meeting, exchange, connection and activities between people.
