Patchwork - Amsterdam
The City of Amsterdam wants to build more than 10,000 homes on Zeeburgereiland, an area in the north of Amsterdam. Approximately 5,640 homes will be built in the new Sluisbuurt district, with the Patchwork building being one of the first developments. It will serve as the central block in the new neighbourhood, providing all kinds of commercial amenities for the community.
Patchwork's unique design consists of 120 homes, several of which will have green roof terraces. The building will have a transparent and vibrant two-storey plinth that will accommodate cafes, shops (including a supermarket), office spaces and other facilities. Part of the design includes a cycle and footpath that runs past the catering facility and into the building from the street, improving accessibility. The building will be sustainable, aiming for energy neutrality and will feature a hybrid construction with a significant portion made of wood.
