The coastal battery Fortress Diemerdam is part of the Stelling of Amsterdam, a former defence line around the capital, which was constructed between 1880 and 1914. The defence line consists of 46 forts and batteries, dikes and sluices at about 15 kilometres from Amsterdam, that by means of inundation would protect the lands of Amsterdam.
In part of the project restoration and renovation of Fort Diemerdam in Amsterdam for the UNESCO world heritage list, a pavilion with a cafe is designed and built by Emma Architecten.
The pavilion stands on the site of a former soldiers shelter. The existing bunkers and fortress guardian house have been restored.

The footprint of the former wooden cottage is taken as the basis for the restaurant. A wooden wall protects the place and the hospitality which is housed within. Whole design concept design is inspired by the undulating forms of the slopes and the surrounding landscape.
