Silodam

MVRDV
2000




In the western part of the Amsterdam harbor a former dam with a silo building on top has been transformed to a mixed-use building with apartments, offices, commercial spaces and public spaces. This ten-storey building has a variety of housing units, differing in size and cost--some double height, some with views on both sides, some with patios. "Neighborhoods" of apartments were created with 8 to 12 apartments, a shared garden, a gallery, corridor, and other shared public spaces.
