Best of Both Worlds

With THIS., we change the perspective on inner-city living, with unequalled views over the IJ river and direct access to a lush green waterfront: a true urban oasis. THIS. is the place where people can work and live without needing to go anywhere else. Superbly located in the up-and-coming Amsterdam-North District, our buildings are in a spacious and spectacular setting, with the vibrant center of Amsterdam just a stone’s throw away.

Design Principles

The angular shape of the building allows a maximum orientation towards the waterfront

Design Principles

The materials palette of red, copper-colored aluminium and glass connect with the industrial legacy as well as the rational grid of the building with its tall windows, rectangular columns and brick arches. On the ground floor, the shared amenities are placed in an open structure contained by wide brick arches. The cantilevers of the office floor frame wonderful views of the water, while providing shade. The vertical louvres of the facade vary in their placement, creating a dynamic look.

THIS. provides sustainability, luxury, and social stability at one of the most beautiful locations.

Embodying Advantages

THIS. is defined by expansive views, inside and out

Embodying Advantages

We discovered that the location offers spectacular views, one of its most unique features. THIS. called for an open facade and a large rooftop terrace, offering an attractive and atmospheric public space. We designed the roof terrace to maximizes the site’s potential, opening up unparalleled views over the IJ water. The buildings are connected by the Hidden Garden, designed by DELVA Landscape Architecture Urbanism, flowing throughout as a hallmark. THIS. perfectly combines the high, vibrant city energy with the more serene environment of Amsterdam-North.
