ENTER Amsterdam is the result of a remarkable transformation of four former office buildings into two residential blocks. On top of the existing structure Ector Hoogstad Architecten designed an extension of three floors that form an airy “cloud” on the stone base. Based on a light steel structure, composite slab with profiled steel sheeting and a wooden frame façade EHA managed to extend the original program with one additional floor. ENTER now consists of 191 two-room, three-room and four-room apartments varying in surface from 50 square meters to 110 square meters. The apartments all have their own outdoor balcony and share a number of communal facilities.
