Key Milestone for University of Amsterdam

After seven years since appointing AHMM as the winner of the international ideas competition to reinvent their Roeterseiland Campus, the University of Amsterdam took possession of Phase One of the project last month. A forty-metre section of a canal-spanning building has been cut out and replaced with a four-storey void to physically and visually open up the campus. The void is bridged by a glazed double-height informal study space with catering facilities, and five storeys of workstations and tutorial rooms, all with views over the inner-city canal-scape. Over the next few months, staff from the Faculty of Social & Behavioural Sciences prepare their move into the new spaces for the start of semester in September. Phase Two continues onsite for the Amsterdam Law School, with expected completion in 2016.
