qubic In the Houthavens, a former harbour area on the West of the city centre of Amsterdam, 1000 students will temporarily be housed here. Until the new housing developments start, these students will live on a ship (the Rochdale One), in former asylumseeker-housing and in 715 container-houses, that were designed bij hvdn architects. The project was designed and built within 12 months. The architects made a prefabricated system out of containers of 9 by 3 meters. This system made that the houses could be built rapidly, they are re-usable and the costs were kept to a minimum. Six different façades with six different colours where chosen to make several changing combinations. Each unit contains a private kitchen, a shower and a toilet. In the most northern block, at the IJ river is a restaurant and bar.
