In Almere AMVEST development developed housing in an attractive dune landscape, called DUNE. The connection between typologies, architecture and intended dune / forest environment is leading herein.
AMVEST believes in the development of the entire region based on the same basic architecture, while the Municipality of Almere believes that different architecture struts and styles are possible and even enriching the desired dune / forest environment.
The power lies in the wealth of architectural styles, the consistency and the scale on which this happens. This list shows what is possible.
This book feeds the discussion between developer and municipality in their search to find the suitable direction in terms of style and architecture on the future phases of development.
The examples shown in the book make clear that there’s a variety of architecture and styles, closely connected with landscape conditions and characteristics.
