Floriande Island 7

Architectenweb Magazine as Media

In the new quarter of Floriande in Hoofddorp 24H-architecture designed 35 apartments and 34 single family houses within the urban plan of Island 7. A centrally situated strip of village green divides a square into a northern and southern part. In both parts one apartment block is flanked by four single family homes. The other residences, that have both front and backyards, are situated north of the buildings on the village green, in the so called residential park.


The facades of the apartments and single family houses have a strong mutual relationship because of clear material use. Aluminium and basalt stone form a coherent pattern. The horizontal level gradually blends into a vertical facade level. The basalt stone is from China and is bonded with the gap or cutting edge in sight. The aluminium plating is anodized in a golden colour and is decorated with a leaf pattern. According to 24H architecture the pattern of dots and perforations embodies the ‘architectural green’ ambitions that the residential estate realises.
