lowrise residential project on one the islands of IJburg
Amsterdam IJburg, NL
Block 62 IJburg
The island of IJburg on the eastern outskirts of Amsterdam has a fairly neutral urban development plan, in which each of the approximately seventy blocks has its own character.
We have allied individual freedom for the occupants with a very urban design. A city canal runs straight through the block, and makes a bend in the middle.
Parking occurs in a completely sunken car park. This enabled us to make a car-free play street out of the roadway running through the block.
Our point of departure has been that its occupants will be able to enjoy living in Block 62 both now and in the future.
Block 62 is a very varied block with 28 different types of housing: there are urban residences with large balconies, spacious houses on the water with their own landing jetty, family homes with gardens and the Pampus house of more than 225m², which has a view of Pampus from the roof terrace on clear days.
The building has outside facades of brick, with bay windows. The ‘eyebrows’ above the windows, doors and balconies give the facades a friendly character.
