DESCRIPTION

Bajeskwartier Amsterdam, Green Urban Living

Bajeskwartier is a green and at the same time highly urbanized district that brings together living, working, learning, experiences, physical activity and leisure. A place with a rich history and exciting future as an inspiring and inviting new district of Amsterdam. A sustainable, energy-neutral district close to the Amstel river, offering a range of functions including around 1,350 homes. With space for 68 themed gardens, most of which are public spaces, and designed to promote a healthy lifestyle. Every modern urbanite will feel at home here. Bajeskwartier will have a diversity of functions. From a breeding ground for artists to luxury penthouses. From city farming to a secondary school, a student hotel and design district. Social rented homes alongside studios for cosmopolitan city-dwellers, a fresh-food market and a brewery. There will be space too for innovative hospitality concepts, workshops, green offices and a health center. Bajeskwartier is diverse and inclusive. A place where you want to be.

High-quality architecture and an urban plan that ensures direct links with the city center makes Bajeskwartier a rich addition to Amsterdam. Where bikes and pedestrians rule the road and cars are tucked away underground. A car-free area, giving plants and animals all the space they need. Even vertical greenery in the form of an initiative with city farming in the Groene Toren; the building that used to be the women’s prison in this former cultural and historical icon of Amsterdam. Bajeskwartier is a model project with ample opportunity for sustainability and firmly based on the principle of healthy living and inclusiveness. By reusing 98% of all the materials from the former prison and using only renewable materials, the design scores exceptionally highly in terms of circularity. The new model for sustainable and healthy urban living is being invented here. In the form of a Living Lab and in collaboration with specialists, researchers, scientists, artists, students, users and residents, experiments will be carried out that will lead to the most innovative and advanced solutions. These high ambitions for sustainability, circularity and health are not just empty promises but will be systematically and carefully developed into verifiable, realistic and achievable goals.
