In the Pold­er­weg area of Ams­ter­dam East the House of the Dance will become a promi­nent cen­ter where chore­o­g­ra­phers and com­posers develop ideas, and dancers and musi­cians can study and rehearse. The Dan­shuis will house pro­duc­tions that have been devel­oped in the cen­ter, in addi­tion to pro­vid­ing a stage for spe­cial national and inter­na­tional pro­duc­tions. An open and approach­able build­ing invites the neigh­bor­hood to engage in the activ­i­ties going on within. Com­mu­nity involve­ment is fur­ther encour­aged by win­dows and screens that offer glimpses into the stu­dios. The cir­cu­la­tion spaces adja­cent to the stu­dios are impor­tant incu­ba­tors of infor­mal exchanges. They serve a vari­ety of ancil­lary func­tions, includ­ing meet­ings and casual work space, while pro­vid­ing a sound buffer between the street and the per­for­mance space.
