House Like Village

House Like Village Marc Koehler Architects

With the transformation of an old harbor-cantina on KNSM eiland in Amsterdam into large apartments, this building changed function but kept its identity.
The house we created is composed from 4 smaller ‘houses’, containing the more private spaces and supporting facilities. In between them, and open multifunctional space emerges (the streets), and natural daylight enters deep into the house.
The elevated second level is used for cooking, dining, working and has a guest house, connected by walking bridges. These ‘roof terraces’ are placed in such a way that you can fully enjoy the view of the adjacent harbor. The walls consist of closets and cupboards which double function as a wooden support structure. The whole loft-space is thus used, but retains its open character.
The enclosed volumes also work as climate compartments and limit the energy use. In the future the functional space can be enlarged by building extra ‘houses’ in the space now left open.
