JagerJanssen architects + DREISSEN architects: restaurant and penthouse het bosch

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

rotterdam-based practice JagerJanssen architects and DREISSEN architects have completed
‘restaurant and penthouse het bosch’, a two-storey structure on the nieuwe meer lakeside in amsterdam,
the netherlands. consisting of a restaurant, private bar, and a penthouse unit, the design sits on
a system of structural stilts to hover above the water, establishing an obstructed view of the site.

the design has two distinct expressions: clad in panels of scorched timber, the face
towards the marina employs a rougher aesthetic in order to reflect the characteristics
of the architecture of boat hangars; the lake facade is defined by a more horizontal
and sleek appearance with large areas of transparency.

in a similar fashion, the roofline of the two opposing sides are also distinguished by
contrasting languages: 3-pitched roof formations on the marina side gradually transmorph
into a straight edge on the lakeview side. the result is a dynamic ceiling surface that
seemingly reconfigures itself from different points of the interior.
