Armada Den Bosch, Holland : Palesikwartier Buildings
Contemporary Buildings in The Netherlands – design by BDP Architects
2 Nov 2007
Armada Den Bosch
Location: Den Bosch (s’Hertogenbosch), Holland
Date built: 2004
1998 architecture competition winners: 10 apartment blocks
Ground-breaking residential scheme celebrates the great outdoors.
Local climate and topography shaped our entire 250-apartment scheme.
We planned the location and orientation of ten mixed long and tall houses to capture the sunpath and minimise overshadowing.
Roof elevations face south and southwest, bathing all living rooms, balconies and principal bedrooms in natural light.
South (wind) side elevations form giant roofs, giving them a distinctive curved profile, while northern elevations house social winter gardens with planted terraces and balconies.
– design a waterside residential development in an historic town
– drive regeneration of a former industrial centre
– maximised natural light and views, minimised wind turbulence
– green energy: rooftop solar collectors supplement hot water supply
