Change = II: nominated for the Amsterdam New Construction Award 2020
Change = was founded to help young adults at the beginning of their housing career. Because even if they have work, obtaining an independent living space in the city that meets reasonable requirements often takes far too long. Change = II is the second location of this concept. This second new apartment complex is located in Amsterdam Southeast near Bijlmer-Centrum. In Change = II, 596 social rental apartments have been realized in an architecturally attractive residential building with a repeated motif in the windows and balconies. The transparent plinth connects to the urban environment. The housing concept has been developed in such a way that the flow is organic and remains accessible in the overheated housing market. The studios are full-fledged living spaces with private bathroom and kitchen. Change = develops from a social perspective. High quality compact social rental homes in an attractive community concept. The building itself has a sunny courtyard, a gym and (later this year) a smart work center with flexible workspaces and meeting rooms. Change = offers not only living space with high-end facilities, but also communal areas where you come together to exercise, work, meet or watch a movie on a large screen. Furthermore, the concept invests enormously in the safety and care of its community. The entrance of Change = II is located on the current Frankemaheerdpad. Unique to the entrance is that the two ground level levels of Southeast have been taken into account. The complex is accessible via a footbridge from the raised ground level. The location in Zuidoost is within walking distance of metro and train station Bijlmer Arena and next to the De Amsterdamse Poort shopping center.
