The project location of 'Stadstuinen' is part of the strategy to extend the westerpark westwards and making it natural to extend the Westerpark within the apartments. Westerpark is a green oasis situated just outside the city centre of Amsterdam. Nowadays urbanity asks for highly flexible, future resilient and sustainable apartments. Because living, working and leisure are more interfering with each other the ability to share space with friends, tourists or other people is becoming more and more important.
The 9 floors high tower has an industrial character and on every facade you can see a vertical stroke of patio´s constructed underneath each other. The apartments can easily be adjusted per day or per season and the patio´s can be used as an inner or outer space. Because the climate comfort can be used individually, each resident can adjust it to their specific needs or wishes. This accumulates in a pleasant and healthy inside climate and a strong reduction of the energy use. Stadstuinen results in a mixture between high urban architecture combined with attractive, big and enclosed patio´s; urban living in between the green.
