“Nine Dwellings Oosterwold exemplifies a new kind of architecture that represents ‘the end of the ego of the architect, producing monuments to himself’”
-FRAME magazine, 2019
Nine dwellings Oosterwold is winner of the Frame Awards 2019 in the category Co-living Complex of the Year, and rewarded with an honorable mention from the Architecture Prize Almere. This housing project is published in the Dutch Yearbook of Architecture 2016/2017.
In the rural area of Almere Oosterwold, bureau SLA and bureau Zakenmaker designed 9 homes in a 100-meter-long building in which the residents received 160 freely divisible square meters. The result: a rich and colorful circuit of different dwellings.
The joint venture is in the 100-meter-long residential building, but also in the shared desire to be able to work and live in a different way. The project represents an architectural shell in which the resident has the freedom to complete it.
