• Apartment block Oostenburgereiland A’dam, NL


Bureau Fraai won the competition to design an apartment building with 21 apartments on Oostenburgereiland where a new mixed-use neighborhood will arise with a focus on new forms of (social)housing and contrasting architecture for housing corporation Stadgenoot.

The jury stated: ‘Bureau Fraai brings interesting visions on the ‘in-between-space’ and entrance areas; as well as a research on innovative floor-plan schemes.’

The industrial history of the location (former VOC shipyards) has been a source of inspiration for the urban design made by Urhahn and the masterplan by Studioninedots and will be tangible in the design of the apartment building. The building has a brickwork facade referring to the industrial brickwork factories and shipyard and the design also refers to the mast and sail of a sailing ship.
