Hyde Park boasts an international architecture. Architect Winy Maas from the renowned architects MVRDV, designed the scintillating master plan of Hyde Park. Various international top architects design apartment complexes in Hyde Park, including the acclaimed MVSA, Team V, MVRDV, Barcode and Studioninedots.
The master plan behind Hyde Park fills two thick folders full of paper. But co-creator Winy Maas (1959) cleverly manages to summarise the concept in a couple of sentences: "Hyde Park will be a lively metropolitan district, close to Amsterdam, where you can live comfortably, meet up easily and enjoy the leafy surroundings. And all that on an un-Dutch scale." Winy Maas (1959) has an impressive CV. He graduated as a landscape architect, but also as an architect and urban planner. In 1991, he founded the architectural firm MVRDV together with two partners. MVRDV, which is responsible for the master plan for Hyde Park, is internationally renowned for its experimental and innovative architecture.
Famous designs of the firm include the Markthal in Rotterdam, the Silodam in Amsterdam, Villa VPRO, Expo 2000 Hannover, the Tianjin Binhai library in Tianjin and Mirador in Madrid.
Dirk Peters and Caro van der Venne founded the firm in 2010. In everything they design, they are constantly looking for a special angle. "What we like about architecture and what we look for in all our designs is a kind of twist, which provokes the right response from people who know the design, but also from people who see the building for the first time." Barcode's vision is to design buildings that bring the surrounding city to life and leave a clear mark on the area. Designs that draw you in when you look at them and that you can identify with as a city dweller or resident. Over a period of ten years, Barcode has evolved into a firm with an international portfolio, known for its unique designs for residential and cultural buildings. Recent highlights include the urban icons The Muse and CasaNova Rotterdam, the striking design for Sluishuis Amsterdam and the library in Caen, France.
He is equally famous as a designer of gardens and landscapes. His work includes the magnificent 'Gardens of Remembrance' in New York, which were created in memory of the victims of 9/11. In the Netherlands we find his work in the landscape of the Singer Museum in Laren and in that of Museum Voorlinden in Wassenaar. For his Hyde Park designs Oudolf took inspiration from the surrounding flora and the views of the seasons in the Haarlemmermeer. This creates a special bond throughout Hyde Park between the inner-city density of the buildings and life in nature.
