Blok 4

Description
The project is the culmination of investigations that started with the Lox Building; London (1995) and developed through, among others, the Westerdokseiland plan (1997) and the essay, ‘Adaptability’ (see a+t 12, 1998). That essay proposed a concept for an ‘transfunctional and multifunctional building that could ailovv the possibility of changing use; living into working, working into leisure or be a container of severai uses simultaneously’. lt expresses activity; whether living or working is not our concern. Units are typically 7.5 m wide, 3.2 m floor to ceiling and 22 m deep. Each unit is entered at ground level, from the street side rather than the kade side and each unit has a central void giving light into the middle of the deep floor plan, thereby allowing many variations in internal layout.
