A breathtaking view of the historic city centre and the IJ river, modern architecture, parking facilities and good accessibility ensure that Oosterdoks Island Amsterdam will be a new and unique part of the city centre.
At a stone’s throw from Amsterdam Central Station, Sorba, commissioned by Oosterdoks Island Ontwikkeling Amsterdam C.V., is working on the (dis)construction of the Booking.com campus at the head of the Oosterdoks Island and the adjacent facade of the apartment building with 42 exclusive ODE Apartments. UNStudio designed this mixed-use building and Züblin Nederland BV realised the architectural execution.
For the facade of the Campus, Sorba will clad the horizontal parts and the outer ceiling with approximately 14,000 ceramic elements. The roof edges will be made of powder coated aluminium and on the north side above the Oosterdoksstraat there will be an Alpolic (aluminium composite) exterior ceiling.
Facade for the flats
At the head of the Oosterdoks Island, 42 exclusive flats will be built on the south side. Sorba is developing, supplying and assembling the timber frame elements (HSB) for this façade, as well as the façades with French balconies, prefab balconies with glass balustrade, and the whole will be finished with approx. 1400m² of Alpolic (aluminium composite) cladding.
A tight schedule
Sorba’s engineers work together with the subcontractors, external consultants and suppliers on the detailed engineering, building physics and structural calculations in order to start production in the 2nd half of 2020. The first parts will be assembled in early 2021 and delivery is planned for early 2022.
