Apto Architects collaborated in a wide team of experts to create a concept and design that matched the high ambitions of the location. Podium F Amsterdam, the area next to Cornelis Lelylaan, will be developed as a metropolitan area with high density. With De Groene Stad, a vertical neighborhood was defined as a cornerstone and catalyst for the area. A community for a lifestyle of sharing, environmental awareness and working on the future together. Shared communal green on the roofs for urban farming, green facades for filtering CO2 particles from the air and a wide variety of energy reducing features were implemented to create this “Green City”. Apto was responsible for both concept and architectural design.

The building connects multiple public street levels by its central inner courtyard.
