Residential house, Amsterdam, the Netherlands

In the Historic center of Amsterdam (which recently has been declared a UNESCO monument) was a small plot waiting to be developed for years. 

The new design is like a shadow of  the building that once stood there. It's a wink to the past, it shows respect for its context and in line with the wishes of the future. A flat wall completely covered with double-sided preoxidised copper tape and flat black aluminum frames provide an abstract view of the former buildings. A contemporary translation of a facade with classic proportions makes the office seamlessly incorporated into the street.
