Unique Carport in Almere
Design: 70F architecture
Location: Almere, Holland
70F architecture created a unique carport. Where most carports have a simple format and are derived from a standard product range, in Almere Overgooi 70F completed an architectural 2-space carport, including an electronic charging point. The carport consists of only two surfaces, one vertical and one horizontal. Since no use is made of supportive poles the carport seems to play a game with gravity.
In 2009 70F designed a villa for the Hendrikx family in Almere Overgooi. The villa is built in the style where 70F is famous for: Spartan hyper-modernism. Last year 70F was asked to design a carport that suited the villa.
Francesca Guerrieri, one of the architects at 70F, has dealt with this project and designed a unique carport: “The horizontal slab looks like it weighs almost nothing. We coloured it white in order to maximize the diffusion of light underneath it and lined it with a steel profile to frame it against the Dutch sky.”
Every detail of this carport is considered and the result shows that even something as simple as a carport can become a beautiful piece of architecture.
