New flexible apartment blocks designed by Tony Fretton architects in Amsterdam 

Tony Fretton Architects is designing five freestanding apartment blocks within a new development in Amsterdam West master planned by Geurst & Schulze for Proper Stok Woningen Bv. Formerly occupied by a hospital, the Sint Andreas Ziekenhuis, the site is bordered on the east and south sides by canals. On the north and west the site faces busy highways. Four of the five buildings are designed around a courtyard to provide a serene centre to the development. A large-scale paving pattern in the central court leads the eye to the entrance lobby of each block, where a unique symbol in the floor distinguishes each apartment building. The fifth block is a perimeter building overlooking the canal to the south. Flats are generously scaled with an average of 114 sqm. A simple floor plate allows flexibility so that living rooms and balconies can be positioned for good sunlight and views whatever the orientation of the building.
