Oostpoort Plot 3 - Inbo: nominated for the Amsterdam New Construction Award 2019
Plot 3 is the final phase of the large new-build project Oostpoort at the location of the former Oostergasfabriek. The diversity of housing types in one city block is special: 34 apartments, small studios, single-family homes with a garden, one special city residence and 22 BeBos: upstairs apartments. The architecture, with a nod to the Amsterdam School, is characterized by rich brickwork patterns with a lot of relief and distinct entrances. As a result, each housing type gets a recognizable look and at the same time, the houses together form one cool block. All houses are accessed directly from the (largely car-free) streets and there is parking in the courtyard and below the apartments. A special five-storey townhouse designed as a large bay window with a view across the street. On the ground floor on the square is a double high space for a studio, gallery or other small commercial function.
