PUNTENBURG BUILDING M Amersfoort
Block M is located on a main access road to the center of Amersfoort. On the side of the Amsterdamsesteenweg the building counts 8 storeys which emphasize the route towards the city center. The low-rise of 3 floors located at the Hollandsestraat blends in with the residential quarter. Beneath the high-rise spaces public-oriented services are provided. The facade consists of dark brown brickwork and forms a delicate frames.
Within this context lie the precast concrete galleries. The windows are aluminum and the sheet material between them is white. Because of their contrasting colour the facade really showcases the three different materials and creates a fresh and modern building. Close to this site Binst Architects is also building block F of the masterplan, a construction of 57 apartments and 33 dwellings. Completion is set for 2012.
