The Studio GAK Noordvleugel: nominated for the Amsterdam New Construction Prize 2014
The north wing of De Studio opened in April 2013. In the former GAK building (which dates back to 1959), 320 young urbanites now live in their owner-occupied or rental home. The apartments in De Studio vary from 28 to 35 square meters. The first phase of the transformation of the colossal office building at Bos en Lommerplantsoen has been completed. The south wing will be tackled in the next phase. More than three hundred homes will be built here. The middle part of the building should become a meeting place for companies, with catering and flex workplaces. The GAK building is located on the busy A10 West. A box-in-box construction meets thermal, noise and fire safety requirements. The green glass facade has been completely redesigned from a technical point of view, but its appearance remains unchanged.
