Abstract
The main purpose of this
thesis is to explore how to deal
with an industrial heritage in
both urban and more detailed,
architectural scale. The project
location indicates another
significant key issue - waterfront
identity, which is essential for the
city of Amsterdam. This thesis
proposes a complex masterplan
for the area, which provides
diverse housing options, varied
public spaces of different
accessibility and character, wellstructured
grid of transport on site,
public facilities, attractions and
great amount of work spaces.
The specific parts of masterplan
are illustrated by mood boards,
which explain desired character
and solutions for sustainable
neighbourhoods.

The specific parts of masterplan

which explain desired character
and solutions for sustainable
neighbourhoods.
The second part of the
thesis is a design of a building
at the tip of the chosen site. The
location indicates a high-rise
landmark, which would draw
attention to the area already from
the river IJ. Created structure is a
deconstructed interpretation of
a silo form with hollow core and
walkways on the outside. Simple
and raw materiality refers to
industrial past of the site. The wind
tunnel formed by positioning of
the towers is used for alternative
energy generation. The outcome
provides common ground floor
level with diverse public functions,
community spaces on repeating
levels and mix of affordable
rental and ownership apartments
with options of conjoining them or
upgrading incrementally. (Less)
