A tribute to the past, ready for the future

From the same family of buildings as KAAP 5, KAAP 1 features two different ‘looks’ that blend together and complement each other perfectly. On the street-facing side, vertical windows alternate with black aluminium to create harmony and balance, as well as a sense of privacy and comfort. The building – like the oxidised copper entrance and bronze door – is both understated and bold, honouring the location’s rich past. The style of the building changes as you get closer to the water: the windows grow larger and change position from vertical to horizontal. KAAP 1 opens up to the IJ River, with the light, skies and views entering the homes through the generous windows. The protruding facade elements and staggered balconies bring KAAP 1 to life and show the vibrant and free-spirited style of this side of the building.

Robust and comfortable

KAAP 2 is a genuine eye-catcher: rock-solid and full of contrasts that bring it to life. Its imposing and powerful exterior accommodates pure comfort and luxury, with plenty of light and space. The two lower floors are open and elongated, offering panoramic views of the IJ River, while the symmetrical windows add a sense of serenity while at the same time keeping the building grounded. The two top floors are nods to the area’s industrial past. Solid and robust steel plates are interspersed by very large windows that welcome in the vast Dutch skies. The penthouse is the building’s highlight: the spacious rooftop terrace offers views over the IJ River which are always spectacular and never the same.

Solid look and feel with impeccable daylight access.

KAAP 4’s rock-solid style is obvious at first sight. The concrete and aluminium exterior give the building a rough-hewn look and are a clear nod to the location’s industrial past. However, KAAP 4 has more to offer: the gates and the wraparound balconies on which they are built exude a sense of grandeur and give the building cachet. Then there is the very special source of inspiration that gave rise to KAAP 4: the ‘golden hour’ – the last hour before sundown, when the light can be magical. There are several elements that refer to this extraordinary time of the day. The minimalist concrete has a warm and soft colour, the large and panoramic windows provide phenomenal views, and the steel plates are perforated against the side of the building, giving excellent daylight access inside the apartments. The units themselves combine original layouts with comfort and space to enjoy the ‘golden hour’.

Transparency with a focus on privacy.

From the same family of buildings as KAAP 1, KAAP 5 is a multidimensional building. One side offers maximum privacy.
The street side has an understated yet welcoming look: anyone who walks in the door feels right at home in the spacious walnut entrance to the building. On the side facing the IJ River, KAAP 5 becomes playful and free. The staggered balconies and facade elements and the large windows on the waterside bring the building to life: open and free, extroverted and multifarious (including its layout). KAAP 5 provides a great variety of homes, with the penthouse serving as the eye-catcher. The mirror-glass structure perfectly brings out its understated yet outgoing character. Transparency with a focus on privacy.

Maverick style with unbeatable views.

As KAAP 2’s rebellious little sister, KAAP 6 marches to its own beat, and while built in a slightly different style than the other buildings, it is similar enough to be an integral part of them. Like KAAP 2, this is a building with a strong character. The bottom floors have clean lines and do full honour to the IJ River. The grand and magnificent views enter right into the homes. The top floors exude strength and honour the building’s industrial past. Strong and robust plates come to life.
Each floor in this building accommodates one apartment, which means all-over views and lots of privacy. The interior is comfortable and luxurious, with a flexible layout. There is plenty of room to adapt to these specific needs.

"The building moves with the environment. On the street side it is mainly focused on privacy and on the water side the building opens, as it were."

North on the IJ river

Eye

As one of Amsterdam’s most iconic buildings, you can’t keep your ‘eyes’ off it. The terrace offers a cinematic view over the IJ River, with the backdrop of the city skyline and the ships passing by. The indoor architecture is every bit as iconic as the building itself – as are the films that are screened there.

ADAM Tower

The place to be. Since the top-floor restaurant rotates on its own axis, the views change all the time. Also, don’t forget to check out the roof! You can oversee everything and everyone, and there is even a massive swing that pushes a little over the edge each time.

Cafe Modern

Boutiquehotel Café Modern is much more than the name suggests. In the old bank you can have a drink in the café downstairs, but you can also enjoy an extensive three or four course dinner. The menu changes every day. And on the second floor is the hotel section, where the Flemish author Herman Brusselmans has spent one of his nicest nights ever.

NDSM

Having once been the beating heart of Amsterdam’s shipping industry, this is now a world onto itself: a dynamic world filled with one-of-a-kind restaurants, street cafés, coffee shops and lively festivals – all located in a unique, rough-around-the-edges setting.

Hotel de Goudfazant

Loetje aan ’t IJ
