Apartment building Emmy Andriesse

Built on the far end of Amsterdam’s new artificial islands called IJburg, the apartment building “Emmy Andriesse” takes full advantage of scenic, environmental conditions. The terraced building allows beautiful views over the open water in the north and over a newly developed city park in the east. The south orientated terraces are spacious and a special one meter wide grass filled planter is used as railing providing privacy as well as an outdoor garden atmosphere. From the outside these long green lines give the building a sawa like expression.
