Barcode Architects design the first block of Hyde Park, a new lively residential area with metropolitan allure will emerge in the edge of Amsterdam. The block is the first development in this block and sets the standard for a new district with dynamic architecture in a daring urban plan. The design is characterized by a rich diversity of high-rise staggered housing that form a fascinating architectonic ensemble that transcends the imagination of the classic housing block. With experimental roof forms and heights Barcode Architects has been able to create new quality of living. This results in an ambitious mix of housing typologies that suit many different types of residents – from lofts located next to the water to maisonettes, from roof terrace penthouses to studio apartments.
