Former factory site in rural Amsterdam to be reborn as a modern neighborhood

Inspired by the surroundings neighborhoods, the Klein Kadoelen houses will feature gabled roofs , timber construction, and a natural color palette of whites, grays, blues, and greens to match the landscape. A variety of housing types will give the new neighborhood visual interest and character. “[It’s] a beautiful location, hidden in the neighborhood, between the large urban developments on the IJ and the unique ‘Waterland’ nature reserve north of Amsterdam,” write DELVA Landscape Architects. “The core of this plan is to blend the neighborhood in to a natural, sustainable way in the existing urban and rural context.” The project’s first phase is expected to be complete in early 2018.
