Small scale timber clad development in Dutch suburb

Untreated timber cladding and angular dormer windows feature in the design of a small housing
development in Amsterdam by Dutch studio M3H Architecten

It consists of two narrow houses and a three-storey apartment block, which all slot into a row of residential buildings in Bellamy, a neighbourhood west of the city centre that has seen a number of renovations and demolitions over the last decade.

M3H Architecten designed the buildings to fit in with the “unique, diverse and small-scale
character” of the suburb, where plot sizes vary and houses are mixed with commercial buildings.

“The street’s architectural characteristics are defined by its staggered facades, irregular plot sizes and the varying heights of its buildings,” said the architects.
