New office addition for Amsterdam West expected to be completed in autumn 

The DTK office building is constructed on top of a two-storey existing complex in Amsterdam West. The project called for a paradoxical addition; to create something new without making a visual disturbance on the context. The folding roofs of the buildings adjacent to either side of the complex motivated the idea of utilizing a metal clad building that resembles the surroundings.

DTK is placed on steel stands with a folding motion aiming towards the west, in order to capture the Dutch sunset. DTK’s silhouette fuses with its neighbouring buildings, creating an organic architectural flow while zinc roof cladding accentuates the building’s soft curved shape.

The DTK Building, already in construction, is expected to complete in Autumn 2009.
