Zuidas is a popular location close to the train station, Schiphol and the city centre of Amsterdam. It’s a business area dominated by imposing office buildings. The George is the first human, green and exuberant gesture here. The festive building has 11 floors and 47 flats, varying in size from 88 to 196 square metres. The south side is a series of stacked green terraces and balconies, which gradually fan out into a wide base.Save this picture!© Arjen SchmitzThis base curls up on the sides of the building like a dress billowing in the summer wind. Because the flats shift in relation to one other, each floor plan has a different shape and quality. The actual façade is transparent and consists of triple-glazed fronts, which can completely unfold. The north side is characterised by a trisected façade with a free relief of glazed brickwork. Two concrete entrances lead to a green hall full of trees, a curled staircase leading upward and an 80-square-metre communal terrace on the second floor, where residents can meet among the greenery.Save this picture!© Arjen SchmitzSave this picture!Fifth floor planSave this picture!SketchSave this picture!© Arjen SchmitzThe striking bowl-shaped roof collects rainwater in water storage and is filled with PVC panels. While the rainwater drains the vegetation, the solar power supplies the central parts of the building with electricity. The George is committed to a healthy and social living environment in a metropolitan area.Save this picture!© Arjen SchmitzProject gallerySee allShow lessCanela House / Workshop, Diseño y ConstrucciónSelected ProjectsRivaparc Apartment Renovation / Nhabe ScholaeSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Zuidas, Amsterdam, The NetherlandsLocation to be used only as a reference.
