The Starling

The Starling
Bajeskwartier will be a diverse district with homes for all kinds of households. The Starling in the Central District is a good example of this. This sturdy building will be a mixed, vertical residential community, with 185 homes in all shapes and sizes. Approximately 110 social rented homes and 75 owner-occupied homes.

The stepped design of the building provides plenty of space for roof terraces and balconies. Social rented homes of De Alliantie and owner-occupied homes will be developed here, together with a health centre, fitness facility and the best ice cream parlour in Amsterdam.

As soon as you step outside your home you will be surrounded by friendly, urban bustle. But indoors is a sea of calm. All homes in this building have clever layouts and their own, secluded outdoor space. Materials from the old prison buildings will be visibly incorporated in the new building wherever possible. Even before they set to work, the architects knew what materials were available and they have adapted their design accordingly. This will produce a genuinely sustainable district with as small a footprint as possible. A really fantastic place to live. Arons & Gelauff Architects designed The Starling. The social rented apartments will be let by De Alliantie.
