Architecture in Nieuwmarkt, Plantage & the Eastern Islands

One of many interesting contemporary buildings on the Eastern Islands, this was built between 1998 and 2000 by Dutch architect Frits van Dongen, and is a energy-efficient, zinc-clad apartment block, with two raised corners to allow more natural light inside, supplying it with its unique whaleness (best appreciated from Levantkade on KNSM Eiland).
