The mixed-use building CrossOver will stand prominently at the corner of the exit A10 South and the Europaboulevard. The project, together with its neighbouring buildings, Amsterdam RAI Hotel by OMA and the new head office of Suitsupply by BIG, will provide a further boost to the eastern part of Amsterdam Zuidas. CrossOver aims to connect functions, environment and people in a dynamic and zero-energy building incorporating spacious green terraces. Though complex and varied, the building is read as a cohesive whole due to the cleverly designed facade grid.
The diagonally rising roof terraces provide more daylight and transparency in the residential street, a healthy green outdoor space for the building’s users and they serve as a buffer for rainwater. Partly because of this kind of solutions, CrossOver scores high on sustainability.
CrossOver includes a surprising mix of living, working, learning and sharing. The residential program largely consists of studio apartments for students, young professionals and status holders. They benefit from shared facilities such as a laundry room, living room, roof gardens and shared electric cars. The double plinth comprises an appealing COworking concept, which is connected to spaces for creative makers, a café-restaurant on the Europaboulevard and flexible office spaces on the head of the building. To be prepared for our rapidly changing society, the building has been designed for multiple use. For example, the head of the building is suitable for both office and residential functions. Also, the studio apartments can be combined into larger homes. Therefore CrossOver is not only very contemporary, but also ready for the future.
