House of the Dance, OKC/BOG, parking, 47 dwellings 9.000m2
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.
