LommerRijk Blok AD: nominated for the Amsterdam New Construction Prize 2013
The LommerRijk consists of 6 building parts with a wide variety of homes. The houses in Blok AD share a communal garden, with a public courtyard above the parking garage. In the original plan for Bos en Lommer, the then modern ideals of creating 'air, light and space' were central. Characteristic elements from the buildings in Bos en Lommer form the basis for the elaboration of the architectural designs. For example, large storey-high windows have been built in and the fences on the street façade are characterized by an oriental motif, in keeping with the Amsterdam tradition of ornaments.
