The aim of this graduation project is to use an existing vacant building in a lifeless area of Amsterdam and create a multi-functional building with a mixture of activities that will benefit both the social and aesthetic aspects of the area, and will attract more people to visit or leave there. It will be a starting point for others to continue. The design strategy aims to apply as minimum structural changes as possible, taking advantage of the specific layouts of the existing building and be an energy efficient, low to zero carbon, climate adaptive building. This will be achieved with smart combinations of various functions having in mind the energy infrastructure, the structure, the interior and most importantly the façade.
