Waterwoningen IJburg ‘Highly Commended’ bij AR HOUSE Award 2013

Amsterdam, juni 2013
Bij de AR HOUSE Award 2013 – de meest prestigieuze architectuurprijs specifiek voor de particuliere woning – zijn de waterwoningen in IJburg van Architectenbureau Marlies Rohmer uit ruim 200 inzendingen uitgeroepen tot een van de beste 11 projecten met de eervolle vermelding ‘Highly Commended’.
De Jury vond de waterwoningen “een zeer overtuigend project”:
“The jury thought this project was an inventive response to the Netherlands’ historic relationship with water. Modest, practical and economical, the floating houses also created a genuinely urban waterside neighbourhood.”
“In most cities with rivers or canals, houseboats are a familiar sight, offering an alternative and economical form of accommodation, but they tend to be limited in size. In this scheme for a suburb of Amsterdam, the concept of a floating house is fully developed into a modular prototype that aggregates into a waterside neighbourhood.”
