Location
Rivierenbuurt, Amsterdam

RIV// responds to the major demand for spacious family homes in and around the city of Amsterdam. This residential building has a unique location in the Kop Zuidas district, between the vibrant neighbourhoods of De Pijp and the Rivierenbuurt and surrounded by the greenery and spaciousness of the river Amstel. The attractive location and its history formed the inspiration for the design. Staggered blocks in the facade allow light to enter the homes and ensure a spectacular view. In addition, they create spacious outdoor areas and provide privacy. The red-brick materials reference the Amsterdam School of Architecture that is typical of the Oud Zuid and Rivierenbuurt neighbourhoods.

With its high entrances and large porches, the RIV// complex has stature. Yet at the same time it is accessible. The building’s details and staggered facade lend a human dimension to its sizeable capacity. As such, RIV// is rooted in its context and connected to the surrounding city.
