Residential Project Praam
While its clean, rectilinear profile and abundant glazing, the Praam residential building is very much what one might expect of IJburg, an artificial archipelago on the outskirts of Amsterdam. Designed by Eindhoven-based architects Marx & Steketee, the Praam is part of a rather old-fashioned and surprisingly intimate style of urban development.

The prestigious IKEM (Institute for Clinical and Experimental Medicine), the Czech Republic’s largest centre for clinical research, is located in the Kunratice forest, on the southern side of Prague. The softly curving pale green exterior of the new Z7 laboratories pavilion sits comfortably, in visual harmony within this woodland location.
