Park Somerlust in Amsterdam has been published in this issue of Landscape Record magazine! This issue features urban renewal an regeneration projects. It is only a few years ago that this riverside park was a messy and unaccesible industrial area, now it is the vibrant new city district, Amstelkwartier.
more about the project
We look forward to the publication of our project Reinventing Dharavi. A slum-upgrading to rethink the approach towards Mumbai’s largest slum, Dharavi. The competition was organized by the Mumbai Urban Design Research Institute UDRI in 2014. Felixx got an honorable mention for it’s entry ‘The game is on’ – Reinventing Dharavi trough streed-led slum upgrading.
The results of the research program of BNA Licht Verdicht have been published in a book!
Together with DiederenDirrix, PH Urbanism, Wijnand Galema and Aronsohn, Felixx was part of the design study to densify Rotterdam, by adding program on top of existing post-war buildings. The municipality of Rotterdam is planning to build more housing in the city center, and since most of the buildings are built after the war, constructions are suitable for adding program on top. Three locations in Rotterdam have been researched by the different teams. Felixx explored the possibilities of the old movie theater Lumière and Maaskant cityflat, owned by Manhave vastgoed.
Our study ‘Varianten van Vooruitgang’ consists of 33 strategies for densifying the existing building block, varying from building on the rooftop, to renovating or partially demolishing the existing and adding high-rise. Depending on the required speed of redevelopment, the size of development and current economic, social, or cultural conditions, a choice can be made between the different strategies. This means there is no ‘final plan’, but rather an approach to develop over time. However, all developments start with three basic principles: an active plinth to create a livable street, celebrate the postwar architecture and integrate the public domain.
Our contribution to the book, called ‘Varianten van Vooruitgang’ can be read in the book which can be ordered here.

Last December our project Ter Apel was published in the special theme edition ‘Flucht nach vorn’ of the German magazine Bauwelt, on how to deal with demand for accommodation for the huge amount of refugees. The magazine showcases different projects and approaches. We are honoured that AZC Ter Apel has been mentioned as an exemplary realisation of a permanent reception center.
We are very proud to be published in the November issue of the German magazine Garten+Landschaft. This time not with a project but with an article on the trend of self-initiated projects. The article introduces Atelier Dreiseitl, Fatkoehl and Felixx; and their motivation for self-initiated projects to raise awareness of the importance of landscape architecture, arousing interest of new topics and generating innovative ideas. The motivation of each project is different, but all have one in common: great idealism.
Thank you for this great article an for putting us on the cover!!!
We are very happy that our project Jaanila Country park has been featured in the november issue of Landscape Middle East Magazine. ‘Parks and community gardens in residential neighbourhoods are a prominent theme in this issue – not only are they a sanctuary for relaxing, socialising, child’s-play and community hub, but many act as the central green space for citizens, such as Jaanila country in Russia.’
Nice review on our Berat project in Albania by Eleni Tsirintani of landscapearchitects Network. Thanks!!
“We know that humans can construct anything they please. Imposing our power on nature has become dangerously easy. The new challenge is to make the environment our partner and consultant, rather than a field for demonstrating our achievements. So when asked this question:
Is “building with nature” a tenet we should embrace?
I would answer without reluctance “yes”. How would you answer it?” by Eleni Tsirintani
Seasonal isles – A drought and flood resilient future for Berat, was a competition we participated in earlier this Summer in cooperation with Unesco-IHE and Polis University Our entry was rewarded with a second prize!
