Student housing Diemen
The town of Diemen borders Amsterdam to the east and much like its bigger neighbour it also suffers from a lack of student accommodation.
This project consists of 250 student homes.
Each home equipped wit its own bathroom and kitchen and balcony.
The building has 5 floors and is laid out as a square with a garden in the centre. Square building designs are also ideal when using used containers, because of the additional structural integrity the design provides. All units are heated with a centrally located natural gas powered heating system. This project also has concrete walkways as a special feature, as an alternative to wooden or steel frame walkways.
The construction time took about 5 months. Although originally planned to be in use as a temporary solution for only for 5 years (and relocate afterwards to a new location) it was earmarked as a permanent structure in 2013. It is unknown when the project will be dismantled.
