Westerdokseiland*

Westerdoksdijk, Amsterdam, Nederland

Westerdokseiland is a residential complex with a high density of 300 dwellings per hectare, designed in partnership with Architecten Cie and Heren 5. The complex contains diverse housing typologies, large and small, rented and privately owned, exclusive and affordable, all designed around three internal squares, each with their own atmosphere and identity.

By giving every dwelling a balcony or communal roof terrace, and the largest possible view of the surrounding area, the building is high-density, urban and relaxed at the same time.
