de Architekten Cie., West 8
location Amsterdam
function housing
contributed by MI_MOA

The Whale is one of three big “meteorites” which have landed in-between the lowrise row houses on the Islands of Borneo and Sporenburg. Thanks to its sculptural shape, this building by Frits van Dongen is a real landmark. Inside are 194 apartments and 1100 m2 office and retail space. Underneath is a large parking garage with 179 places. The traditional closed block (100 by 60 m) has been transformed by lifting the two, so the public space flows through underneath. Inside the block is a private garden, designed by West 8. The apartments are accessed from galleries running along the inner façade.
