amsterdam zaandammerplein

The complex around the Zaandammerplein was built between 1922-1928 by design of architect K.P.C. de Bazel. It is a nationally listed building.

At the start of the project the objectives were:
– Deal with the problem of collective heating in two blocks;
– Reduce noise nuisance between houses;
– Improve ventilation;
– Unambiguous appearance of the shell, doing justice to the listed status of the building;
– Project is carried out during occupancy; empty houses are renovated;
– Activate attic storage;
– Differentiate the housing on offer by joining houses together and offering them for rent in the private sector.

The restoration of the houses varied per phase. Per block the preferred approach was determined in consultation with the occupants before the work started and depended on the renovations carried out in the late 1970s. This differentiated approach resulted in a wide variety of floor plans that, on the whole, have provided good and liveable housing.
