Huis Buiksloterham is one of the self-build plots of the Municipality of Amsterdam. A project of 200 m2 for a single-family home with workspace has been completed under private commission. Buiksloterham used to be an empty area, where mainly hardware stores and product suppliers were located. There was potential to realize a house that would radiate heat, without losing the rugged, industrial character of the developing location. A stratified house was designed like a giant peach, with a hard pit, pulp, and skin.
