Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
The MVRDV architects from Netherland has completed an apartment design project in Amsterdam. They picked an open design to build the whole apartment by using minimal amount of materials used, glass, steel and concrete, results in maximum openness for the façade.
The apartment occupies a large area of 6000 square meter which contains 46 apartments and a day-care center. Each apartment has a balcony of varying depths which stretch as bands along the entire facade, offering varied outside spaces and views over the western docklands of Amsterdam.
Started as a project in 2004, the Westerdok apartment is currently one of the nominees for the Amsterdam Architecture Award. The urban plan is a closed city block with buildings of differing heights surrounding a central court. After two earlier urban plans failed, the client O.M.A. (Ontwikkelings Maatschappij Apeldoorn) has in fact determined the current urban plan. The MVRDV building is located inside the court with one façade facing the waterfront of the Westerdok.
With tons of blueprints (over 16,000!) for different furniture designs and outdoor woodwork projectsyou can have a great insight into how to build different things with wood. In it, they tell you about wood, how to design projects, the detailed photographs, patterns, blueprints, materials list and step by step instructions on how to put build them.
The second part shows you the different tools and how to use them, and a complete guide to woodwork carpentry. And the color photographs and drawings are beautiful and show a lot of detail.
