The Eye of the Hurricane: Smakkelaars Park

The Smakkelaars Park team presented its plans for the development of Smakkelaarsveld, situated in the Utrecht station area. Lingotto, Arup, Studioninedots, ZUS and VKZ joined forces to design a hybrid, urban landscape that merges the architecture with green spaces. Smakkelaars Park, the new name, will be developed into a sheltered urban landscape: an oasis of calm in the midst of Utrecht’s hectic public transport hub.

West Beat at Lelylaan

Studioninedots and Lingotto are proud to present West Beat, an iconic design that has a collective ‘Super Space’ as its heart. West Beat has a vast, transparent ground floor – a continuous public space. From a physical and programmatic sense, residents, businesses and passersby experience West Beat as a lively connector.

Comprehensive renovation: PH House

We renovated and extended the 100-year-PH House. The formerly conventional ground floor is imagined as an open landscape: a series of flowing spaces are enhanced by height differences and organised around bespoke furniture elements. Showcasing the original interior details, these new interventions reinforce the craftsmanship of the entire renovation.

Studioninedots designs Yotel Asterweg Amsterdam-Noord

This hotel is designed as five different, interconnected volumes in a park-like setting fronting Tolhuiskanaal. A unique circular water system addresses the issue of high water usage in hotels.

Smiley ☺, Zeeburgereiland

On Zeeburgereiland, Smiley is prominently situated at the gateway to Amsterdam, right in front of the entrance of the Piet Heintunnel. With a length of 134 meters and it's lively silhouette it can not be missed.

Villa Kavel 01

The location of the villa is special. This diamond shaped plot lies at the tip of the island surrounded by water with spectacular views over the park. We started with an abstract concrete volume that follows the form of the site. Due to its shape, the building will be experienced differently from every side. Sometimes narrow and sharp. Sometimes massive and wide.

Voilà: Facette à Bordeaux

We proudly present: Facette, a collective and future-proof mixed-use office building in the heart of the Bordeaux’s district Belvédère.
The transparent and sculptural ‘rez-de-chaussée’ (the ground floor WeSpace) functions as a collective, versatile space for working, leisure and meeting, as an extension of both the workplace and the public space.

Akropolis/De Generaal (Block 1a1b, Zeeburgereiland)

Wisselspoor, Utrecht

At Utrecht Wisselspoor an 11-acres site now gradually transformes to a sustainable urban working and living area according to our dynamic masterplan.

De Alliantie headquarters, Hilversum

In the coming years, the 3.5-hectare Lucent site in Hilversum will be transformed into a vibrant new mixed-use residential/commercial development.

Being in good condition the four-storey office building was retained, however, renovations were required for its new function.

YOU, Lot YA, Boulogne-Billancourt, Paris

Boursorama Banque has moved into its new Parisian head office in Boulogne-Billancourt designed by Studioninedots.

Hollowing out a simple rectangular volume at strategic positions resulted in a dynamic and open floor plan. The building’s sculptural volume features curved transparent walls that afford warped perspectives and unexpected panoramic views, and draw light in beautifully.

Lofts by the Amstel

Thanks to its completely prefabricated white concrete facade with undulating balconies, Lofts by the Amstel is undoubtedly an eye-catcher by the waterside of Amstelkwartier.

De Melkfabriek new hotspot at former Coberco site Arnhem

For the transformation of the former Coberco factory site in Arnhem we proposed to open up the current disused industrial site on the Rhine river with and for the people of Arnhem through creating a distinctly sustainable and lively urban environment.

Situated in the coastal dunes of Scheveningen, Dune sits at the foot of the red cast-iron lighthouse. Its rugged architecture and staggered profile boasts uninterrupted views from all apartments and strengthens the identity of the landscape, the boulevard and the sea.

The TrueTalker

This spring, Amsterdam hosts the EU. On the Marineterrein, politicians discuss and decide on Europe’s future, under full observation. In reaction, at the nearby temporary campus FabCity, Studioninedots and StoneCycling built a pavilion with a fireplace right in the heart of it. Because a good campfire triggers storytelling, everyone is invited to sit down, relax and share warming, unreasonable, crazy, unimaginable and hilarious ideas.

City Icon Kop Grasweg

For this landmark located between the IJ and Tolhuiskanaal, we designed two slim towers that merge underneath into a podium with terraced apartments instead of one huge, solid volume.
Kop Grasweg forms the southernmost part of Buiksloterham, Amsterdam North. This whole area is currently being developed into a sustainable neighbourhood for living and working.

Little Manhattan, Amsterdam Nieuw West

At this moment the Lelylaan Station area can only be experienced as an infrastructural hub. This given situation provides the motive for a both specific and large-scale addition to the area that is of greater importance than to its plot only. Extensive residential amenities and apartments for students and young professionals offer opportunities for social interaction, for a welcoming and lively destination.

Importantly, the football field that currently occupies the vacant site will be retained and complemented with additional community facilities.

Another requirement was to have rain water harvesting on the roof as well.

Cityplot Lammenschans

Lammenschans is located in the southern part of the city of Leiden. The site is an isolated area between access roads and railroad tracks and currently contains industrial functions.
