Near the A-10 in Amsterdam Heren 5 architecten designed a residential care building for homeless people. The building consists of four buildings in one: a house for transients, a house for group homes, a boarding school and a number of independent houses. A two-colour coated aluminium volume is folded around a green lung of outdoor spaces and placed on top of a solid stone plinth. The stone plinth is the art project 'tattooed' by Frederick Molesworth; layered icons, based on intensive consultation with the future residents, with references to the "key to happiness". With an under-(plinth), intermediate (low-rise buildings on the street) and upper world (tower on the A-10) the connection with the environment is found at three levels: street, neighbourhood and city. The fascinations at the basis of the design are the tensions between the individual, the homeless and the collective.
