Bellamybuurt Amsterdam

Neighbourhood factory Ruimzicht

The magazine The Architect praises the project of architect Marlies Röhmer: "The urban context of the Neighbourhood Factory brings some attractive conditions to it." Unfortunately, she forgets to mention that the detailed planning and architectural principles were the result of our design process with residents and businesses in this bustling neighbourhood of Amsterdam. They wanted not just another apartment block, but a sturdy 'neighbourhood factory' with 50% living and 50% working that matches the history of this bustling neighbourhood where you can find the last blacksmith in Amsterdam.
