The Ensemble

    The Ensemble on Karspeldreef 14-16 in Amsterdam Zuidoost is a mixed-use new construction project with two residential towers, about 5,000 m² of base plinth and about 19,000 m² of office space. The urban development vision in this area of Amsterdam makes it possible to accommodate high-rise buildings. The constellation of building volumes will play an important and integral role in defining the urban profile and the adjacent public area.

    In the perspective described, a Neighbourhood Vision was drawn up together with the City of Amsterdam, (pioneering) developers and the agencies CULD and Site. This vision makes it possible to incorporate high-rise in this area that is to be transformed. With 'The Ensemble', two residential towers will be added to the area. On a high plinth with social space (a health centre with pharmacy, a youth talent centre and a social district team) and commercial spaces (catering, sports and office facilities, and underground car park for cars, scooters and bicycles), the residential towers offer space for various target groups. In addition, a bicycle shed will be built on the ground floor “in the heart of the building”, accessible from both sides via “pockets”. The new residential complex consists of modern flats in three rental segments for residents in different stages of their lives.

    In collaboration with VanBelleMedina architects.
