contributed by next-architects

The design of this private residence in the no-frills, former industrial part of Amsterdam North was inspired by the vision of a giant, black peach. House Buiksloterham consists of a single open-plan residence on four different levels. As with a peach, at its centre is a wooden core. This is where all the private accommodation and facilities are located, with the surrounding spaces used as living areas. Huis Buiksloterham managed to create an environment in which indoor and outdoor seamlessly merge, yet retaining the sense of warmth and intimacy so essential to a home. As nothing has been hidden away, all building materials such as pipes and cables are in full view. The use of wood and red brick gives the building a warm look and feel. The building has a robust outer shell incorporating large windows and a facade comprised in full of black, perforated corrugated sheeting. At night, these perforations create a spectacular light show, illuminating the residence as if it were a lantern.
