Q Residences

Studio Gang 建築家 として

 

Studio Gang’s first completed building in Europe, Q Residences addresses Amsterdam’s urgent need for housing, creating a mixed-use community at a key intersection in Amsterdam-Zuid. Located in the heart of Buitenveldert—one of the last garden cities in the capital—the project draws on the neighborhood’s relaxed, verdant atmosphere to establish a dense yet comfortable living environment.

Introducing two new distinct building volumes—Qube, a mid-rise, and Quartz, a high-rise—that add 248 residences to the growing city, the project’s design brings a more organic, sculptural feel to the rational rectilinearity of the surrounding 1950s developments.

Angled balconies of staggered depths create an origami-like pattern that envelops the taller building, lending an undulating rhythm to the façade, while also establishing visual connections between neighbors and shading the apartments below. The angled geometry and generous balconies are mirrored in the architecture of the mid-rise, allowing every inhabitant access to the outdoors, fresh air, and abundant natural light and views.

"We designed Q Residences to strengthen residents’ connection to each other and to the ample green spaces that define Buitenveldert,” said Jeanne Gang. “At ground level, Qube and Quartz form a new generous public plaza that brings people together around art and landscape. And on Quartz, the balconies migrate in and out of the façade to extend sightlines diagonally in all directions and allow residents be part of the building and in synch with the city and each other at the same time.”

At the urban scale, the architecture and landscape work together to create a pedestrian-friendly environment with new pathways through the block that reinforce important axes and connect the buildings’ retail spaces and public amenities, including a green plaza designed by Piet Oudolf with Deltavormgroep. Combined with the architecture’s passive environmental design, Q Residences’ energy-efficient envelopes, high-performance heating and cooling system, and rooftop PV panels help Amsterdam advance its ambitious sustainability agenda, while evolving its garden-city legacy.

We have implemented the straight glazing in our IsoPerform Sun glazing. This is solar control glazing which has a very nice Tl/g factor of 71/37. But the real specialty of the work is the curved glass. This glass has a IsoPerform (Cool-Lite) Curved SKN 176 coating which is produced in our vandaglas - döring factory in Berlin. There are extremely large windows in this project. The window on the ground floor has a size of 2900 x 5300 mm.

The unique thing about these windows is that they are crystal clear, there is absolutely no distortion. Imagine that you are sitting in your luxury apartment and looking out over the skyline of Amsterdam and there is a distortion in your view. That just cannot be! How is it possible that in the glass of vandaglas – döring are so crystal clear? This has to do with our craftsmanship of the people in the factory in Berlin.

Q Residences

Rijnboutt Architecture, urban planning, landscape, strategy として

Q Residences is situated at the intersection of Buitenveldertselaan and Van Nijenrodeweg, a striking intersection of two important urban structures in Cornelis van Eesteren's Algemeen Uitbreidingsplan (AUP). The complex, which covers an area of 27,600 m2 and includes 248 rental apartments, consists of a plaza and two residential buildings: the medium-height Qube and the tall, dashing Quartz. The careful urban integration, distinct architectural language and high level of finishing give the project iconic value.
