The new apartment complex is at the start of a major neighborhood renewal of the Schinkelkwartier. By restoring the historical connection between the Amsterdam districts of Nieuw-West and Zuid, the neighborhood is transforming from an abandoned industrial area into a well-connected urban district. B@home offers affordable housing for starters and responds to the current housing problem in Amsterdam.
The residential building will be built on the former IBM-site, next to B.Amsterdam; a dynamic hotspot for startups, freelancers, and small businesses, that was also designed by NEXT. With its unique character and vibrant community, B. has grown to be the social heart of the emerging urban district. The addition of housing completes the range of facilities. It contributes to the development of the district and makes the Schinkelkwartier a lively city neighbourhood.
