Urban Villa in Amsterdam by Pasel Kuenzel Architects

This L-shaped wooden house by Dutch studio Pasel Kuenzel Architects sits at the water’s edge on an artificial island in Amsterdam.



Rotterdam studio Pasel Kuenzel Architects designed the family home in Grote Rieteiland, one of six islands that makes up the man-made archipelago of Ijburg, east Amsterdam.



Each residence on the group of islands is allocated a similar-sized plot and shaped by strict scale and massing guidelines.



For this house, the architects created a rectilinear building with a three-storey tower on one side and a small courtyard at the entrance.
