• Oostenburgereiland A’dam, NL


Bureau Fraai won the competition to design an apartment building and an office building 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 is tangible in our designs for the two buildings.

In September 2017 the project started with a design atelier at Stadgenoot together with Laura Alvarez Architecture, Architectuur Maken, Common Practice and Mix Architecten.
