5 photo: Marieke Mannens photo: Marieke Mannens Kruisheren Cloister Kruisherengang NW Maastricht Situated in the centre of Maastricht is the former 15th century Kruisheren (Crutched Friar) monastery Together with the monumental Gothic church, this complex has been transformed into a very special designer hotel It is a unique place, in which antiquity and modern design are interwoven; yet, at the same time, architectural contrasts between the past and the present are very clear The designers often walk the tightrope between dignity and blasphemies During the French Revolution, it served as a barracks and arsenal Early last century, Victor de Stuers esquire and the architect Cuypers took pity on the complex of buildings, which had fallen into a state of disrepair Following major renovations, the buildings were put into use as a National Agricultural Research Station Late in 2000, Camille Oostwegel took the initiative to save this unique building from ruin Large-scale renovations transformed it into a luxurious, contemporary designer hotel, retaining respect for the past Project is public! 2007 Supplier SATIJNplus en GIRA Camille Oostwegel Château Hotels -Restaurants Marieke_Mannens photo: Naomi Schiphorst 24/7 Please contact to visit the hotel rooms From Eindhoven/Heerlen: end of A2/E25 motorway to Maastricht you reach a large crossing, turn right to Hasselt Follow Ring Noord Cross river on Noorder bridge Turn left at traffic lights, to Tongeren Turn left in Calvariestraat After 500 m pass a Church and Monastery on your left This is it!

13 Piazza Céramique Mosalunet 6221 JM Maastricht As one of the last urban blocks to be realized in the 'Ceramique Area' of Maastricht the scheme does not opt for the here common solution of the closed perimeter block, but employs a spatial strategy in which urban space is opened up Through strategically placing 3 volumes it not only makes that the public space flows though the site, but it also involves the triangular green area to its east into this interlinking of urban spaces The program within the block was that of an integrated form of dwellings and working space In terms of typology the project tries to revive the 19th century type of mansion annex practice usually inhabited by lawyers, doctors, architects etc Characteristic for this type of integrated house and practice was the separation of entrances, leading to the public practice and the private house Via an a glassed atrium that acts as a sort of public lobby for both the apartments and the workspaces one enters one of these spaces 2006 Main designer,, Urban planner Jo Janssen en studioivo Wim van den Bergh Vesteda 13

14 Limburg waterworks HQ Limburglaan GA Maastricht In the south-east of Maastricht near the hill of St Pietersberg, the dominant course of the Maas is translated into a slender structure parallel to the river; visible from afar, it mediates between the two quarters on either side of the ring road, 'Céramique' and 'Randwyck' A long volume follows the ring road in its ascent to the Maas bridge, and simultaneously leads to the tall building With its four floors, it has been kept as low as possible to be able to lie low beside the rising embankment A further vertical body brings the two volumes together, a 'spine' with its vertical development and a 'social condenser' with its meeting rooms and coffee and tea kitchens on each floor The entrance hall takes up two floors, from where the restaurant and aula are reached via steps and galleries At the very top, at the end of the course, the conference room and roof terrace look out over the entire city 1999 Main designer,, Urban planner Interior architect Jo Janssen en studioivo IAA en Paulus Egers Watermaatschappij Limburg 14

15 Hazendans Koninksemstraat 6215 KA Maastricht Surrounded by four streets, 16 patiohouses are designed, which own both a formal entrance and a rear-entrance The presence of these two entrances, located on the sides of the buildings, create rather long and narrow lots and the houses all have a wide view towards the garden The houses are built in turns, which creates a larger space considering urban development The ground level is intended to be used as a living level, while the rooms on the first level are intended to be used as bedrooms The rooms of the ground level are grouped around a screen of reglit-glass, which separates the hall from the living-room 2002 Main designer,, Urban planner Jo Janssen en studioivo Wim van den Bergh 15

16 YTW2 Maastricht Bovenstebosch 6228 Maastricht This building, located in a new housing estate, is designed on a screen of nine squares, 5x5 metres each The ground level of this house contains the parent's bedroom The other level, divided over three squares at street side, contains the children's space Divided over the same zone, the basement accommodates several storage rooms and one room which is only accessible by reaching the core of the house This room is lit by the submerged patio, connected with the surrounding garden through a basin and a cascade The inner and outer spaces provide several forms of seclusion, from the open garden surrounded only by a few concrete plates, to the completely hidden patio beneath the cascade This is designed to guarantee privacy for it's habitants; the façades do not show it's floor plan 2000 Jo Janssen en studioivo 16

17 WVD Maastricht Koninksemstraat 6215 Maastricht This private house consists of two volumes, of which the head volume is divided into three different levels; one level for the children, one for living and one level reserved for the parents The second volume contains both the kitchen and the basement By using a split-level organisation, all three levels flow over, causing the children's floor to be semi-submerged and the habitable floor to be lifted up halfly, to aid the privacy of the habitants Next to the master bedroom, which is oriented on the east, the parent's floor offers a study, connected to the hall and providing a view over the nearby Belgian border Contrary to the back façade, which offers big open windows and thereby connect the building to the garden, the windows on the front façade are made of reglit to create a distance between the habitants and the visitors However, all windows are chosen to let in daylight and offer view photo: Jo Janssen en 2003 Jo Janssen en studioivo 17

18 Capucijnenhof Capucijnenstraat 6211 Maastricht The Capucijnenhof is one of the many enclosed spaces in the urban fabric of Maastricht A conglomerate of buildings of a former monastery including a chapel abut an inner courtyard shaded by 6 giant chestnut trees The existing buildings have been converted into apartments and supplemented by three new patio dwellings The three dwellings are located in the smaller part of the courtyard, which is divided in two spatially by the chapel Through the change of function the courtyard becomes a kind of extroverted introversion, an intriguing spatial paradox also exploited in the typology of the three houses The entry level a storage room, the bathroom and three bedrooms, two of which open onto a small patio in the back The upper floor contains the living area that opens to the side towards a kind of elevated patio, which in turn overlooks the courtyard again 1998 Main designer, Wim van den Bergh Ger Widdershoven studioivo 18

19 photo: Sahil Latheef photo: Sahil Latheef La Fortezza Offices and Housing Avenue Ceramique KV Maastricht The site of La Fortezza Offices and Housing is located at a turning point on the central axis of a newly built area The lot is triangular, one side of which is formed by a street in a residential area and the other by a motorway The issue of the corner is dealt with by use of a cylinder which, placed in the middle, articulates two linear volumes The determination of uses is expressed by the volumetric composition Hence the apartments are located in the cylindrical volume, while the offices are located in the two linear ones In its tripartite articulation of surface, the design features deep cuts that reveal loggias and an ordered repetition of windows The cylinder, being almost double the height of the linear volumes, becomes the focal point A square courtyard is delineated within the cylinder and two large portals in front and a generous cut at the rear reveal the courtyard to the exterior photo: Sahil Latheef Floor area/size m² Structural engineer Mario Botta Büro Hoen architecten Wilma Vastgoed Sahil_Latheef 19

20 photo: Sahil Latheef photo: Sahil Latheef Academy of Art and ure Herdenkingsplein PW Maastricht Conceived as an extension to the existing Rijkshogeschool, The Maastricht Academy for the Arts has provided new spaces for the academy of visual arts and architectural design The building makes an incision into the city's body, an entirely new and foreign organism invading its urban context; a process akin to the operation of a virus Yet it is set in a discrete, almost camouflaged relation to the city, providing an enclosed public space that achieves an intimate and secluded condition from the main area's of urban activity The project includes the renewal of the existing Academy for the Arts, together with the extension affected by two buildings Adjacent to the old building is the new structure that contains an auditorium, a library, an exhibition room, a bar and a roof garden The connecting footbridge with translucent glass brick floor and ceiling leads one through the treetops into the workshop building, accommodating wood and steel workshops photo: Sahil Latheef Public access unknown! 1993 Wiel Arets s Academie Beeldende Kunsten Maastricht Sahil_Latheef 20

21 photo: Sahil Latheef photo: Sahil Latheef Arets-Sijstermans House + Studio D' Artagnanlaan 29/ CH Maastricht Set in an area of Maastricht that is dominated by villa's and suburban houses, the Arets-Sijstermans House + Studio appears, when seen from a distance, as a rectangular wooden box implanted into the ground Only the immediate surroundings and interior unveil it's complexity The complex nature of the building is due to the architectural manipulation but within a host of restrictive laws imposed on constructional projects at the site It's richness is brought to light by the complex arrangement of the terrain and the interior spaces The term 'ground floor' is abstract in this design since half of the three-storey volume is below ground For the actual ground level, the term 'garden level' is more appropiate The levels thus include the top level, the garden level and the lower level Not only is the building vertically divided into technical spaces for living and working, but horizontally as well, as it is divided into two equal halves at street level photo: Sahil Latheef 1997 Wiel Arets s Arets + Sijstermans Sahil_Latheef 21

22 Kimbria Tennis Club Mergelweg XK Maastricht Near Sint-Pietersberg in Maastricht a sports complex is located The Kimbria Tennis Club is part of this complex, which is situated next to a neighbourhood with residential houses The architect chose a simple, modest volume for the new accommodation of the tennis club The building contains utility spaces like dressing rooms, a referee room and a kitchen The public space contains a grand café and a staff room The building is designed with respect for the already existing elements in its surroundings For instance, an old tree is integrated in the design and becomes an important part of the new composition The existing height differences of the site were used to place the club house on a platform This base also functions as a terrace for the grand café and offers a nice view of the tennis courts Public access unknown! 2006 Jo Janssen en studioivo 22
