On Kop Zuidas in the south of Amsterdam the scaffolding of project Square has been dismantled, revealing the nicely detailed masonry of the outer façade. Square is a compact residential building with 111 mid-market rental apartments. With its on-site restaurant and young inhabitants, Square will serve as a lively center-spot for this new neighborhood between the Rivierenbuurt, RAI and Amstelpark. A linden tree has recently been planted in the inner courtyard, soon to be a showpiece of 8 metres tall. The gate will be enriched with an art piece, a filigree fence with bronze linden branches. At the beginning of May, the new inhabitants will move into their new homes.

The volume consists of 5 to 8 floors surrounding a green courtyard. Large balconies, corrugated masonry, a 7-meter-tall column on the square and 3-meter-high ceilings on each floor endow the building with a robust, monumental charisma. This way, the building both blends in with the surrounding Amsterdam School, as well as the AUP-neighborhood (Amsterdam Expansion Plan). The apartments’ interior also stands in the tradition of post-war housebuilding and is of very high quality. All apartments come with incorporated cabinets, a complete kitchen and a luxurious bathroom. With its pellet stove, Square moreover uses an innovative heating system that achieves an EPC of 0,2.
