Kopblok Houthaven/Frame Amsterdam
|Architect:||Frits van Dongen|
|Designer:||Van Dongen Koschuch Architects and Planners|
|Product:||Facade tiles with gold glaze|
The building is the termination of the differentiated collection of higher and lower buildings of the first building strip in this area. As the head building of this strip, the building is all-sided and shows a sleek, stony façade structure that creates a 'framed view' of port and city through the large glass surfaces and deep negates of the façade from the inside. The gold-bronze tint and materiality of the facades reinforce the warm and intimate atmosphere and expression of the building.
