Water dwellings, Schillingdijk, Amsterdam-Osdorp, 1999
The local council of Amsterdam-Osdorp dedicated the south side of the district to the environment and ecological water management. Here, TANGRAM Architects built 18 water dwellings. The timber-framed houses are supported in pairs on concrete bases surrounded by water alongside a dyke (Schillingdijk). Each base is ‘plugged’ separately into the dyke.
