Parkblock Houthaven: nominated for the Amsterdam New Construction Award 2019
In Parkblok Houthaven, 130 newly built owner-occupied homes have been realized for a mixed group of residents. A mix of starter apartments, three to five-room apartments, luxury penthouses and spacious family homes. All houses have their own outdoor space. The heart of the pentagonal Parkblok is a green inner garden. The parking garage for residents is located under the shared courtyard. Because of the quality and orientation of the houses, no fewer than 38 types have been applied in nine volumes that differ in shape, articulation and materialization. The volume on the Haparandaweg is high as a sound buffer. Opposite is a lower residential building made as a stepped transition to the park. Parkblok is built sustainably. Much attention has been paid to energy and material use. For example, there are solar panels on the roofs and the houses are connected to the district heating network.
