The student housing project in Amsterdam, called the Zuiderzeeweg, is an innovative project in itself. Designed by the Netherlands-based Fact Architects, the moat remarkable trait that makes the initiative stand out is that it was built to be temporary and can be transported to a new location if the need arises. Thus, it makes something of a mobile shelter. If you want to shift from that place; you could take the whole structure with you too.
The housing project has been designed to be durable and sustainable as well and that feature makes it the perfect choice for today’s climate. It also enables it to remain robust and functional after getting transferred to other places as well.
The student housing project is made up of high-quality, modular housing blocks. The blocks are stacked on top of each other to form six block buildings.
The entire structure is enveloped by a durable facade of black wood. As many as 335 prefab units have been designed with an eye on future environmental requirements.
Each building is of five floors and they are arranged amidst grass walls that has a large courtyard in the center. It is provided with lawns and an orange sports field. Concrete blocks are used as extra outdoor seating near the entrance of the complex.
Bike parking has been arranged along side the road .A light rail stop is situated close by, making the complex provide for easy access to public transportation.
