A flood-defence, parking garage and a place to visit. A stunning multifaceted project wins the inaugural WAN Infrastructure Award 2016 

We are thrilled to announce Royal HaskoningDHV, ZJA Zwarts & Jansma Architects and Ballast Nedam as the winners of the WAN Infrastructure Award 2016, with their Kustwerk Katwijk project – Many congratulations.

The winning architects were selected from a final shortlist of six superb projects. The competition showcased an outstanding and diverse range of the finest Infrastructure designs from across the globe. 

The jury contained top names within the Infrastructure sector, the panel included: Huw Thomas, partner at Foster + Partners, Amit Khanna, regional director of engineering at HOK, Peter Chamley, global infrastructure practice chair at Arup, Colin Bennie, associate at John McAslan + Partners and Paul Rea, architect at Genlser.

Naming the Kustwerk Katwijk project as their winner was a unanimous decision by the experienced jury; with the panel all agreeing the project was a worthy winner. 

Commissioned by the city of Katwijk, Royal HaskoningDHV drafted the architectural design of the parking garage and translated this into a thorough master plan. Based on this master plan, Ballast Nedam and ZJA Zwarts & Jansma Architects drafted the integral design (architectural, functional, structural and installation) for the realization of the parking garage. Special attention was given to the integration and materialisation of the entrances in the dune landscape, as one of the main principles of the architectural masterplan and the public domain, which was designed by OKRA Landscape Architects.

The special parking garage in the Dutch town of Katwijk is an integral part of the town’s new water defence system, protecting the town against the North Sea. The garage is situated behind a new dike and is located underneath a natural dune landscape. Integrating the parking garage with the water defence system not only protects Katwijk from the Sea, but also offers the tourists an opportunity to park directly near the beach.

There are many elements to the design which the jury discussed in-depth. Huw acknowledged the way in which the project had created a place for the public to visit, commenting: “This project celebrates the fact that we have to build infrastructure and it can be joyous and a real addition. It’s simple and elegant and arguably this project has potential for extraordinary legacy.”

At the entrances, the dune landscape is lifted to create an obvious entrance, allowing the landscape an uninterrupted flow over the roof of the entrance. This gesture not only ensures that the character of the dunes stays intact, it also provides for the vital admission of daylight into the underground parking garage, benefitting the orientation within the parking garage.

In the design, the underground parking garage is considered as a high-quality public space. This is subtly achieved by using a pallet of sturdy, yet qualitative materials. The guidelines from the masterplan required a consequent corporate image and integrated way finding. A ‘family’ of maritime-inspired icons and colours was designed in such a way to guide its visitors in a relaxed and natural manner towards either the centre of the town or the beach. Paul, was impressed with the detailing, saying: “The paving and edging is a very good use of simple materials. This project is thinking outside the box.”

Highlighted for its elegant and simple end result from such a difficult project and brief, Colin admired the challenges saying: “There is a complexity to this project which is almost hidden. There’s a real romance to it.”

With the jury panel full of praise on such an interesting design, Amit summarised why the project was named the winner: “The project is an excellent example of a resilient design elegantly done and inviting. Parking structures have typically been devoid of the context they are built in and designed in un-inviting designs without realising that these structures are usually the first place people come to before their eventual destination. This design blends itself in its surroundings while providing a functional, sustainable and resilient defence against flooding.”

WAN AWARDS would like to congratulate Royal HaskoningDHV, ZJA Zwarts & Jansma Architects and Ballast Nedam for their incredible winning project and to thank this year’s jury panel for their informative and thorough discussions. We would also like to thank all those who entered into the Infrastructure Award 2016.

The winning project was recently announced at UK Construction Week. We’d like to take the opportunity to thank not only the jury, but all who entered their projects into this years’ WAN Infrastructure Award.
