Amsterdam Architecture Walking Tours

The urban development plan for the Westerdokseiland (Western Dock Island) project comprises a series of perimeter blocks situated between the IJdijk and the Westerdok. The development plan for the Westerdokseiland Zuidblok ‘its southern block’ was master­minded by Meyer & Van Schooten Architecten. The architecture within this block was designed by three selected architects offices, namely Meyer & Van Schooten Architecten, Heren 5 Architecten and de Architekten Cie.

In the urban design for the Zuidblok it was decided to set three groups of dwellings around a semi-public inner area, a so-called ‘cour’. Each such ‘cour’ has two main entrances, on IJdijk and Westerdokskade respectively, which give access to the various vertical circulation points within. The three cours with their housing clusters are being developed above a two-storey garage with more than 200 parkingspaces.
