‘Zeebonken’ was the name of the entry from architectural office Space & Matter and builders Heijmans and De Nijs for the  competition of the urban planning and architectural development of Oostenburgereiland in Amsterdam. The name Zeebonken, tough sailors or seamen in English, represents the series of robust housing blocks that they designed.
The name was chosen because of the cultural heritage of this area that used to be part of the eastern docks of Amsterdam.
I’ve designed the tender book and made the illustrations for the cover and team page.
