400 METERS HOUSING & FACILITIES
Dukaat is located along the main axis through the residential district of De Aker in Amsterdam West. All functions – housing, shops, amenities – are combined in one 400-metre-long complex, which is designed as an elongated retail strip along an arcade. With commercial spaces and amenities in the plinth and apartments on the floors above, the project achieves an optimal mix of functions and dual land use.
The design blends urban design and architecture, disciplines that should always be merged in projects of this kind. At an urban level, the complex is designed in such a way that it acquires the desired scale on all sides.
On Pieter Callandlaan the rhythm of the elongated façade is defined by urban portals and subtly alternating façade patterns. The portals
break open the long plane and establish visual connections with the neighborhood, while bay windows, loggias and sun lounges render individual apartments visible on the façade.
On the northern side, the volume is broken down to blend harmoniously with the small-scale housing. The public space continues on a second ground level inside the building. As a result, various gradations in the transition from street to dwelling — public, semi-public, semi-private, private and collective spaces — succeed one another logically.
