Unopiu Nederland design : OMA, celebrated Dutch architecture firm

According to the architects, OMA, “Byzantium adjoins one of the busiest metropolitan sites in the Netherlands on one side and on the other a quiet rustic lane next to the Vondelpark, the Zandpad. This contrast defines the theme of the hybrid building: the design tries to do justice to both conditions by using the metropolitan scale to screen the idyll.”
