Accoya slats highlight parking garage
In the coming years, approximately 1,800 homes will be built at Oostenburg in Amsterdam, in various segments. In connection with the ambition to make Oostenburg car-free, a central parking deck with Accoya slats that is in between houses was chosen. By increasing parking near the entrance to the district, it allows for a car-free island as desired with room for a lively public space.
The natural Accoya slats together with the robust concrete fit in well with the sturdy and industrial character of Oostenburg. The Accoya wooden frame around the glass creates a beautiful connection with the concrete as an abstracted frame.
The seven-story building has a sedum roof for sustainable water storage. Also, the roof is fitted with 719 PV panels. With this, the Parking House generates enough energy to be completely energy neutral. Rui taxi charging stations use the remaining energy. The building is the greenest location of Q-Park in Amsterdam.
MIX architectuur designed parking house Oostenburgereiland on behalf of Ten Brinke Bouw. Holland Immo Group and Q-Park are the operators of the garage. MIX architectuur and Ten Brinke Bouw are also working together in Amsterdam on Lot 8. This plan includes 64 apartments next to the parking garage at Oostenburg, 26 of which MIX architecture is designing.
