In 2013, together with our partner Zadelhoff, the first sketches were made for a new building on the corner of the Ring A10 and the Parnassusweg (Zuidas). The fitted building was designed by Diederik Dam (Dam & Partners Architects) and has the shape of an hourglass ("Hourglass"). In close cooperation with the municipality of Amsterdam, tenants Loyens & Loeff and PREM Group, the design has been developed into a mixed-use building in which shops in the plinth, high-quality offices, 115 hotel apartments and a "sky bar" have all been given a place.
Skyline Eye Catcher
Along the Parnassusweg Hourglass forms an ensemble with the adjacent NoMA House. From the A10 and the renewed Station Amsterdam Zuid, Hourglass will soon be visible as part of the skyline of the Zuidas. The construction of Hourglass started at the end of 2017, and the building will be handed over to the tenants by the end of 2019, so that it can be used in early 2020.
