West 8
location Amsterdam
function urban plan
contributed by Naomi

A total of 2500 dwellings have been built on the two former harbour peninsulas Borneo and Sporenburg. The area was covered with a carpet of low-rise/high-density back-to-back patio houses, interrupted by 3 large landmark buildings. Various architects each designed a type of patio house, which were grouped in small clusters and re-appear in several places on the islands. The main challenge was to develop a typology in which a small patio provides daylight and private outdoor space for the inhabitants.

Borneo Sporenburg
C. van Eesterenlaan 41
Project is public!
How to get there? The nicest way to go to the Eastern Docklands, is to take the boat from the Central Station to the Java-island. It leaves from behind the central station, at pier 7. It's a free ride, and takes about 10 min, to the head of the Java-island. From there it's about 15 min walking to the KNSM-island and 20 min to Sporenburg and Borneo. You can also take tram 10 or 26 from Central Station. Or rent a bike.
