Office Winhov is responsible for the design of a 65m high residential tower at the August Allebéplein in Amsterdam Nieuw-West by client De Key. The tower comprises of 174 social housing apartments and is part of a new building block. The design is part of the densification of De Westelijke Tuinsteden and follows the ensemble in which the building is located through its horizontal alignment and closed parapets. The use of prefabricated concrete elements provides speed of construction and more control over the quality of construction. The outer shell of these elements also consist of concrete, in different finishes. The load-bearing facades and core enable maximum flexibility within the interior. This flexibility of the plan ensures a long lifespan for the building. Construction will start in the third quarter of 2022.
