Amsterdam dike garden

Amsterdam dike garden

 

There are very special areas in Amsterdam Noord with a strong cultural-historical value. Old village centers with iconic buildings and church towers refer to these old villages, slowly, swallowed by the city.

 

The address where this garden is located is in such an area. The garden is located on the Buiksloterdijk.

There are very special areas in Amsterdam Noord with a strong cultural-historical value. Old village centers with iconic buildings and church towers refer to these old villages, slowly, swallowed by the city.

The address where this garden is located is in such an area. The garden is located on the Buiksloterdijk. An old dike with a ribben of characteristic historic houses.

 

The new garden has been created together with the renovation of the historical home. The new extension (a modern, large and bright living kitchen) has a direct relationship with the garden. Inside and outside flow seamlessly. Because it is a building on a dike there is a significant difference in height in the garden. In the design this is an important fact which is made visible through a composition of lines and surfaces that forms a timeless passe par-tout framing the picturesque environment in which it lies.
