Ringdijk 11-13: nominated for the Amsterdam New Construction Prize 2011

A contemporary apartment complex with seven homes has been built on the historic Ringdijk in Amsterdam East. Because the original buildings could no longer be preserved, a new building was chosen. The clients wanted environmentally friendly, life-proof homes with maximum freedom of choice for buyers with regard to the floor plan. In order to use the space as intensively as possible, a semi-sunk basement with three storeys and a roof floor was chosen. Characteristic of the Ringdijk is the activity and liveliness in the plinth (the ground floor and the basement). To meet this image, it was decided to use façades covering both floors. The entrance to the complex is located at ground level and thus has a height of one and a half floors. The houses are accessed by a walk-through lift and a staircase. The distribution of the windows in the facade follows that of the demolished building, which consisted of three buildings with two windows per layer per building. A system of solar boilers and geothermal energy provides the houses with heating and hot water. In summer, the installation can be used to cool the apartments. The houses have a high level of insulation.

Het Parool about Ringdijk 11-13: A collection of individual housing requirements

The Ringdijk, on the side of the Middenweg, is a kind of village in the old Watergraafsmeer, a colorfully varied row of houses at the foot of the old polder dike. A new block with seven apartments has been built on the site of three old buildings, which has been completely developed by the aspiring residents. The initiators are Jan Kolthof (54) and his partner Wijnand Luttikholt, who own a company that renovates dilapidated buildings. They had already submitted a plan in 1996 to thoroughly renovate Ringdijk 11, 12 and 13 and then to live there themselves, together with people who previously rented there. However, the condition of the buildings turned out to be so bad that they had to be demolished. An adapted building plan encountered all kinds of obstacles, with the result that the place remained in the news for years (not very flourishing) as 'the hole on the Ringdijk'. Kolthof eventually took a different approach. For example, a residential building was created with the very latest insights: climate neutral and life-course proof. Donald Harte (47) of Warmtebelang, an installation company specializing in sustainable energy technology, has set up a complete engine room in the basement. No fossil fuel is used for heating; the floors (even those in the stairwell) are heated with geothermal energy extracted from the earth a hundred and fifty meters deep. “The installation is powered by one hundred percent green electricity,” explains Harte, “so the CO2 emissions are zero – exactly the target of the municipality of Amsterdam by 2015.” The additional cost of such an installation over conventional heating in this building is approximately twenty thousand euros, Harte calculates. “But the energy costs are half that of heating with natural gas. Here they can recoup the additional costs in four years. ” The seven houses have been delivered as a shell. Each resident could discuss with architect Cornelis Willemsen how his apartment should be arranged. The hull price of the three large apartments amounted to approximately 400,000 euros for 125 square meters; the four smaller apartments, of approximately sixty square meters, were sold for 250,000 euros. Not cheap, but for that price there is an elevator in the building. One apartment could thus be occupied by a disabled person. “Every home is different,” says Kolthof proudly, “every resident had maximum say.” It is of course no surprise that in such a self-build project the residents loudly praise their homes ('village tranquility, view of the dike and all shops nearby') and give them a high score, a 9.7. The jury that compiled the top ten only selected the Ringdijk after some deliberation. Barbara Dijk was the deciding factor: “These people have spent so long making something where they want to live themselves, and it is also suitable for the disabled.” Two small apartments were bought by the architect Ben Loerakker (80), known for the RAI Congress Center, the courthouse on Parnassusweg and the hotel now under construction for the Westerdokseiland. “I was looking for a place to live for my studying grandsons when I happened to walk by here,” he says. “The next day I sat with Luttikholt and immediately put my signature. Yes, they were bought within a day. If I am sure of something, I like to do it quickly. ” “It is impossible for these starters to rent and these are ideal homes for them. Grandson Jan now sits here, also almost graduated as an architect. But they are in fact temporary housing. I have eight grandchildren. They get a contract for five years, then they have to get out, then the next is next. ”
