Housing Dock

Enrico Hartsuyker and Luzia Hartsuyker-Curjel
1980-85




This building near the Centraal Station contains 6 floors of apartments but shops, restaurants and office as well on the two bottom floors. The support structure is the repeated concrete piers. This husband and wife team was interested in models for social housing and this building is apparently indebted to Le Corbusier's Unité d'Habitation. The Calypso Apartment Building is behind this structure.
