De Heelmeesters: nominated for the Amsterdam New Construction Prize 2014
The residential and office building De Heelmeesters is part of the Eenhoorn area and is located between Gooiseweg and Wibautstraat in the Eastern district. Until recently, it was mainly a business park. The program includes 178 rental apartments and 2,600 m2 of office space. The design provides for two U-shaped blocks with inner gardens that together form a strong urban development ensemble with a view of the water of the Ringdijk. There are two semi-sunken parking garages under both blocks. The base of the complex is formed by four floors of apartments. It rises in height to a maximum of seven floors, with the penthouses on the top two floors. Four heads, with cantilevered rounded panoramic balconies from the second floor, look out over the water. The entrances to the houses and the commercial space are accentuated because they are slightly set back in the facade. The houses look out on the green inner garden on the inside of the blocks with openings to the parking garage.
