Amsterdam's Alligator-Shaped Mixed Use Development Offers Unique Public and Private Spaces

The Albino Alligator is mixed-use project composed of five buildings that is designed to regenerate the Buiksloterham region in Amsterdam North. Rotterdam-based Maxwan architects designed each branch of the office to house a different part of the building's program, which resulted in an alligator-shaped building.Each building is used for a different purpose and forms a part of the alligator’s body. A series of public spaces including retail and offices forms the head, a strip of row houses forms the body, a residential tower serves as one of the legs, a tower of live-work studios serves as the second leg, and a fitness club makes up the tail. Each building is shaped by its structural and programmatic needs.

Illuminated Sports Pavilion in Rotterdam

This pavilion with illuminated eaves was designed by Dutch firm MoederscheimMoonen Architects for two football teams in Rotterdam. The sports pavilion forms part of Park 16Hoven, a new residential suburb of the city. The two-storey building has dressing rooms and storage on the ground floor covered by turf mounds, which slope down to meet the pitch surface on the northern side. The clubhouse and boardrooms on the upper storey overlook the pitches, with the grassy slopes forming a natural grandstand. The roof extends on all sides and is illuminated at night by LEDs.
