Solid 11 Amsterdam
Design: Tony Fretton Architects
RIBA Awards 2012 Citation:
Solid 11, Amsterdam
The client sees his projects as satisfying a need not making a profit; they are designed to last for a century and so have to be adaptable to the needs of unknown occupants.
Spaces were auctioned on the basis of what users would bring to the mix and include restaurants, boutique hotels, a dentist, a hairdresser and artists, alongside regular residential uses.
What Tony Fretton has achieved is to deliver a building with endless possibilities by providing light, tough, and in some places, ingenious spaces.
