Valley by MVRDV

MVRDV has devised and built the Valley building in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The dramatic, geology-inspired, plant-covered Valley stands out in Amsterdam's Zuidas neighbourhood with its three towers of 67, 81 and 100 metres and astonishing cantilevered apartments.

The building distinguishes itself in several ways: it combines offices, shops, catering, cultural facilities and apartments all inside one building.

Additionally, unlike the closed-off buildings elsewhere in the Zuidas, the green valley that winds between the towers on the fourth and fifth floors is accessible to everyone via two external stone staircases.

This project has been longlisted in the mixed-use project category of Dezeen Awards 2023.
