amsterdam-based practices bureau SLA and overtreders w have collaborated to initiate, design and complete the ‘noorderparkbar’,
a coffee bar and local gathering space for residents in north amsterdam, the netherlands. entirely funded and constructed by members of the two firms,
this bottom-up project sourced all the components to build the structure from approximately 100 individual traders found on a dutch market
website similar to eBay. although solely comprised of second-hand materials, the pavilion projects the appearance of a new construct.
due to their method of gradually gathering the building elements, the design and building process occurred simultaneously.
