De Hoofden Housing HouthavensCollectief De Hoofden
70 dwellings on the IJ-river in Amsterdam
This collective housing block (CPO) in the dock area of Amsterdam was designed as part of design team ‘De Hoofden‘, a collaboration between Space Encounters, Architecten Cie, Thijs Asselbergs and Marc Koehler.
The project has been initiated with collective private clientship and is now nearing completion. The climate neutral 10.000m2 housing project provides inhabitants with a freedom unprecedented in residential development:
an unfinished five meter high wind and waterproof concrete shell, in which occupants can realise their dream in truly sovereign manner.
