Solid 11, Amsterdam : New Dutch Building

Mixed-use Development, The Netherlands – design by Tony Fretton Architects

21 Jun 2012

Solid 11 Amsterdam

The Netherlands

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.
