The collective DIY-housing project Amstelloft consists of spacious loft-apartments. Inspired by dwellings in old schools, churches and warehouses: flexible space with double height which can be turned into living spaces ranging from open lofts to four-bedroom-apartments. The future inhabitants were intensely involved in the realization benefiting the pronounced posibilities and character of the design.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinLiving Like in Old Schools, Churches and Warehouses                                                                                                          The living spaces have a height of 5,5 meters which allows every household to realize their own demands and dreams. The concrete structure can be filled  with extra wooden floors which are easily adaptable when the interior no longer fits due to, for example, increased family size or a change of job.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinInitiative, Design and Mentoring of Realization                                                                                                                              WE architecten took initiative to start this DIY-housing development. At information evenings a group of enthusiast future inhabitants was formed around the spacious living concept. The municipality awarded the initiative with a beautiful site with a fanstastic view on the river Amstel, running through the heart of the city of Amsterdam. Save this picture!SectionCharacter-Filled Structure                                                                                                                                                         The arched facade openings enhance the experience of the double-high spaces and give the DIY-housing structure a binding and outspoken character. Large facade openings and voids making it possible to create deep and bright apartments since daylight can enter deep into the building. Making a compact building was important to realize the high sustainability ambitions.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinFully Engineered                                                                                                                                                                          One important principle was the separation of the building structure and the interiors in the realization process. This gave the individual households full freedom within their living spaces. This deviation from the regular building process also required a thorough coordination with the municipality. During the design process the DIY-housing concept was fully engineered in all its aspects.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinEmbraced by the Inhabitants                                                                                                                                                      The DIY-housing concept ‘Living like in old schools, churches and warehouses’ has been fully embraced by our clients. This has resulted in a surprising variety of lively and spacious interiors. Save this picture!© Filip DujardinProduct Description. The materials enhance the concept of ‘Living like in old schools, churches and warehouses’. The buildings’ structure is meant robust en tough and the chosen materials age well. The number of materials is limited to create a modest and timeless facade. The arched facade openings are strenghtened with the brick detailling.Save this picture!© Filip DujardinProject gallerySee allShow lessd3 Announces Winners of 2016 Natural Systems CompetitionArchitecture NewsAD Classics: Roman Pantheon / Emperor HadrianArchitecture ClassicsProject locationAddress:Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.
