Spikvoorde II

Rene van Zuuk Architekten B.V. as Architects

Spikvoorde is a part of “De Vijfhoek” (The Pentagon), a new neighborhood in the city of Deventer in The Netherlands. The project is situated in a prominent location in this area - at a T-junction which offers a view to all directions. The distinct location calls for a vertical beacon that acts as a reference point within the neighborhood. Therefore the building has been split in segments that accentuate this vertical effect, this effect becomes more apparent when reflected in the water and seen from the entrance way The segments are horizontally split to create balance in the facade.


The first segment is aligned with the entrance road. This volume get repeated two times by rotation. The complete configuration curves along the road that runs next to the water, creating a complex system to the eye but that is highly repetitive in building structure.


The north side is different; the building is partly underground following the adjoining road. Here a primary school occupies the fist three floors of the building. Next to the entrance is a raised playground that helps to hide the school offices.
