project type: offices, parking
status: in progress - design phase
client: Spijkerpand BV
design: allard architecture
Building off the success of the XITE HQ building, the neighbouring Spijkerpand is a new development on the Spijkerkade in the up-and-coming Amsterdam North. Designed to retain the post-industrial feel of the area akin to a contemporary tribeca loft, the building faces south with views of the future plaza and the IJ. The structural ‘shell’ opens the building and allows for such uninterrupted views.
The intent is to create a healthy workable space in the north of Amsterdam, a quality not yet readily apparent in the developing neighbourhood.
