City Dox on site
A century back mixity was an integral and unquestioned part of city living : imagine Amsterdamís Canal Houses commingling shops, living quarters and attics for stock. Today itís become tricky, especially at large scale, and CITY DOX on site since end 2016 is no exception to the rule. Built on a non-descript brownfield site stranded alongside a noisy car-ridden artery, the project combines housing, offices, and workshops Ö the first block of a soon-to-sprout neighborhood including shops, a home for the elderly, a day-care center, a school, and more. Treatment of extensive soil pollution is now finished, and foundations under way. As in Amsterdam, the federating ingredient here on CITY DOX is the tranquil canal landscape : architecteasassocís project focalises on that.
