De Walvis

In historical Amsterdam, the office building De Walvis on Bickerseiland has been stripped down to its bones and completely revitalised by KAAN Architecten.

Panorama House

On a former campsite is the plan area ' The Nieuwkoopse Eilanden ' realized. The new building plots are spread over a number of headlands between the Nieuwkoopse Plassen and Zuideinderplas.   Building plot 15 is an extra wide plot at the end of one of the headlands an provides a wide view over the lake. The quality of this unique location is fully utilized in the house: the neighboring facades and the roof- and floor surfaces are relatively closed and form a comfortable shell. The front and rear facades on the other hand, are open and offer a wide panorama of the surroundings. Outdoor terraces, protected from wind, rain and too many sun exposure, are created by placing these mainly glass facades inwards and position them at an angle.... More

Crossroad in the House

This is a house for a couple and a small son in Sakai City, Osaka Prefecture, Japan. We designed a large house with a square plan and designed four small houses from each vertex. The gap between small houses becomes a crossroad. The small houses are designed to be alone and the crossroad is designed to stay with the family. Residents can live in and out of small houses and a large house. The windows of small houses are connected to the crossroad, and the windows of the large house are connected to the garden, gentle hills, trees of the forest, the sky and the clouds. More
