location Amsterdam
function housing, office
contributed by KCAP

The new Huys Afrika residential building has been designed as a periscope that overlooks the old Afrika warehouse in the direction of the river, with respect to the cruise ship terminal. The entrance to the new Afrika warehouse has been formed by maximizing the integration of living and working, as well as the creation of a mix between old and new. The façade is made of rust-coloured, prefabricated concrete elements that form a 'fabric' in order to emphasise the sculptural properties of the volume. The northern façade, which faces the river, has been tilted up and is in its entirety constructed of glass. This double façade forms a barrier to the noisy ships. Due to the disturbing noise levels from the adjacent railway line, the other façades are to be made of extra thick glazed elements. The newly placed columns interact with the existing ones in a manner by which the building's proportions are retained, thus doing justice to this monument.
