Holland // modern residential architecture

Friday, 15 June 2012

Na Holanda, sobretudo se pensarmos nos contrastes de Amesterdão, os bairros residenciais marcadamente modernos são quase tão interessantes como os deliciosos conjuntos de casas tradicionais que decoram os canais - é obviamente (de)formação de arquitecta a falar.
Aqui, as ruas estão desertas e é agradável passear de bicicleta enquanto, na condição de discretos voyeurs, nos surpreendemos com a combinação de materiais, as formas variadas de vãos e fachadas, os criativos desafios à engenharia, os laivos de cor que trazem vida ao dia mais cinzento, os detalhes que fazem de cada casa igual a tantas outras, única e habitada.

In the Netherlands, especially if we think of the contrasts in Amsterdam, the distinctly modern residential neighborhoods are almost as interesting as the delicious sets of traditional houses that decorate the cannals - this is obviously the architect within me speaking.
Here, the streets are deserted and it's nice to ride a bike, as discrete voyeurs, and feel constantly surprised with the combination of materials, the variety of shapes of windows and facades, the creative challenges to engineering, the splashes of color that bring life even to gray days, the details that make each house similar to many others, individual and inhabited.
