Location: Zandaam, Netherlands

This project, completed for MIR architecten, is a feasibility/sketch design
for a potential development in Zaandam, on the outskirts of Amsterdam.
It looks at the historical architectural build-up of a ground floor filled with retail,
whilst the upper levels are used for housing, maximising the density of the urban block. In this case we propose contemporary micro-apartments
which can also be combined in to larger units.
The façade is also designed as a contemporary interpretation of a historical façade
from the area, with investigations in to timber construction. All rights belong to MIR architecten.
