Used as a visitor's center, the Paviljoen Puur by Emma Architecten towers with its detailed design.

Standing proud in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Fort Diemerdam in Amsterdam, this building is an architectural marvel. The structure was inspired by its surrounding landscape's curvaceous greenery. Undulating walls seem to climb towards the heavens and are constructed of wooden shingles to showcase a seamless harmony between the design and its surroundings. "Due to its curved shape it will change colour gradually, soft like nature, without sharp edges or hard lines," says architect Marten de Jong.

Paviljoen Puur by Emma Architecten features sliced windows that allow for glimmering light to pass into the construction's three storeys. With its timber shingles and breathtaking surroundings, this building is a delightful addition to the heritage site. Stats for Spiraling Shingle Architecture Trending: Older & Average
