Knightsbridge is an ensemble of six residential buildings around a green courtyard. Each building has its own typology, entrance, identity, character and materialization, resulting in a pleasant scale within this large building block. The project will house approximately 400 apartments, a fitness center and commercial spaces.
Knightsbridge is part of the new sustainable urban district Hyde Park in Hoofddorp. This new city development designed by MVRDV aims to transform the outdated office district of Beukenhorst-West into a lively urban district where 6,000 inhabitants are expected settle. The Knightsbridge building is prominently located at the beginning of the boulevard that connects the Hoofddorp train station with the city center.
