Image Wharf – Multifunctional City Jungle

Imagewharf is a creative campus located in the Houthavens of Amsterdam. The area is a former industrial zone, slowly transforming into an urban district for creative industries. The Imagewharf consists of three characteristic buildings: the Ontwerpgebouw, the Werkgebouw and the Studiogebouw. Together they generate a multifunctional campus, including various crafts, studios, offices and exhibition spaces. Felixx designed the campus landscape as a layered city jungle.

The Wharf landscape is composed of a collection of gardens on various levels around, on top and inside the buildings. Facilities activate the gardens on the contours of the campus, while the interior yards offer quiet places to unwind. They are linked through a spectacular yellow bridge, climbing 9 meters up from the road level to the Activity Roof. This garden has a flexible layout, with movable plant tables, benches and seats. The natural waterfront shapes the Pioneers Garden along the Danzigerbocht. Inside the Werkgebouw there is a special split-level Patio Garden. Small networks of stairs and corridors create an adventurous routing within and around the buildings, merging out- and indoor spaces into a hybrid campus landscape.
