Van der Pekbuurt winner public award BNA 2023

22 June 2023

The renovation project of 94 homes in the Van der Pekbuurt in Amsterdam-Noord is the winner of the public award for the renowned 'BNA Best Building of the Year' award of 2023.

From the expert jury report: “The art of this renovation mainly lies in what you cannot see. The approach of this project is exemplary and shows that renovation rather than demolition is worthwhile".

Van der Pekbuurt
The entire complex in the Van der Pekbuurt has been renovated and given a new foundation, and it is now ready for the future. The floor plan of the houses has been adapted to current housing requirements and the 100-year-old protected cityscape has been restored. A cluster of 30 social homes within the project has been set up as a housing cooperative.

The project was realized through a partnership between Ymere, Dura Vermeer, the residents Bureau Monumenten en Archeologie Amsterdam, Ibelings van Tilburg architecten, LMV bouw+kundig adviesbureau, Vattenfall, Nieman Raadgevende Ingenieurs and Pieters Bouwtechniek.

BNA Best Building of the Year
BNA Best Building of the Year makes the added value of architecture visible. Not the best architect or the most beautiful building. It is precisely buildings with added value for the environment, user and society that win the prize.
