Villa Vonk shortlisted for Rotterdam Architecture Prize
VenhoevenCS is proud to announce that Villa Vonk has been shortlisted for the Rotterdam Architecture Prize!
In September 2014 professionals and the public could send in projects for the Rotterdam Architecture Prize. This has lead to a very nice overview of schools, office buildings, bridges, a parc, a square, a station, commercial buildings and a lot more. The jury has now selected a shortlist. They judged architectural quality of the projects and the significance they have on their neighbourhood and the city.
Other aspects that were taken into account:
- The type of projec;, to give a good view on the variety of new buildings in Rotterdam
- The size of the project; to give attention to both small, medium and large projects
- The geographical spread; because the jury wants to give attention to quality of the built environment in every part of Rotterdam
The result is a splendid shortlist of 25 projects. Soon documentation on each project – with drawings, photos, text etc. – will be available on the website of Rotterdam Architecture Prize. The jury will start selecting mid October and the public can vote on their favourite project in November.
The award show of the jury prize and the public prize will take place on Wednesday 17 December in the city hall of Rotterdam.

VenhoevenCS designs Hogekwartier sports complex in Amersfoort
The new Hogekwartier sports complex offers an extensive sports program of 10,500 m2. With its striking color and nighttime illuminated trim, the building is an eyecatcher from the entry of Amersfoort. From all sides the different functions in the building are recognizable by its distinctive façade openings. On the Buurtas the building is open and inviting with the entrance and terraces. To the side of Waterwingebied and Spreeuwenstraat the building has a landscaped appearance with roof terraces and green roof.
The interior is light and the emphasis is on the quality and atmosphere of the areas. The viewing on use and users of the building plays an important role, as well as the reflection of the light and the particular view of the surroundings. The optimum facilitation of performance is the main focus of the Hogekwartier sports complex.
OLCO – Sports Sphere will develop and realize the new sports complex. The design by VenhoevenCS includes a 10-lane 50 meter competition pool, multi-purpose pool with 10 meter diving platform, multi-basin and NOC * NSF sports hall of 54 x 33.
Completion is scheduled for October 2017.
