Van der Pekbuurt wins 'Amsterdamse nieuwbouwprijs 2018'
De Van der Pekbuurt, a renovation project in Amsterdam Noord, won the Amsterdamse Nieuwbouwprijs 2018. Part of this garden village has been radically renovated. It concerns more than 300 homes in the social sector. The project received 21.9 percent of the votes. The Amsterdam New Building Award is the public award for new buildings in Amsterdam. 94 projects that were delivered between August 2016 and August 2017 participated. A public jury chose from the ten most appealing and Pieters was nominated with three projects.
The Van der Pek neighborhood in Amsterdam-North consists of 1476 homes and retail spaces. This garden village was the first major urban expansion in Amsterdam North. The entire district is a state-protected city and village view. Ymere has now tackled the southern part and radically renovated 172 homes in the social sector.
The buildings have been given a new foundation and the living floors underfloor heating. The houses have been completely demolished and subsequently a new layout has been made; the returning residents have designed the new housing layout themselves. The hood is insulated and equipped with new roof tiles. All installations in the homes have been renewed; the energy label has been brought from G to A. In close consultation with the Monuments & Archeology and the Spatial Quality Committee, it has been determined how and how the outer shell of the houses has been restored. The houses for sale also have to follow these guidelines when renovating. A few houses have been converted into retail and catering spaces at Van der Pekplein.
