How to create a neighborhood in a new area? Just across the river IJ lies the future lay-out of Amsterdam. Industrial activities have moved away of Amsterdam Noord, leaving these areas open for redevelopment close to the city center and infrastructure.

Over 2,000 homes will be added in the location Klaprozenbuurt. Apto developed a masterplan with a mix of apartments from social housing to upmarket apartments. For starters, couples, families and the elderly. This concerns 40 percent social rental housing, 40 percent medium-priced owner-occupied and rental homes and 20 percent private sector housing.

Two internal courtyards form the core of the neighborhood. The yards are connected to the park. This way we invite residents to go outside, meet up, organize an activity or have a stroll.

After all, we are pioneering place makers mixing local added value with tomorrow’s challenges into identities, systems and new spatial forms.
