First residents move in to De Karel 2.0!

The time has come. After two years of construction, De Pijp has gained an apartment complex. A complex that provides space for no fewer than 24 two-room apartments in the medium-price rental segment, entirely in accordance with the wishes of the municipality of Amsterdam. All apartments have now been rented out. In fact, the new residents already moved into the apartments at the beginning of November

The apartments are arranged as so-called maisonettes, with the living room, the kitchen and the balcony on the street side facing south. The bedroom and bathroom are on the garden side of the complex, facing north. All residents have access to the communal roof terrace.

The apartments are delivered complete, including a PVC floor, finished walls and ceilings and lighting. The kitchen has built-in appliances and a grey composite worktop and light grey kitchen cabinets, a combination of shades that creates a pleasant and peaceful atmosphere. In addition, the apartment has a bathroom with a washbasin and a spacious shower and a separate toilet. The apartments are heated by means of floor heating that is connected to the heat pumps of the thermal storage system. The solar panels installed on the roof provide electricity for the central facilities, among other things.

The facade of De Karel 2.0 is made up of vertical, slender stone strips combined with large windows and dark aluminium frames. By using the same materials as the adjacent buildings and placing them in a different structure, De Karel 2.0 fits perfectly between the adjacent buildings, but at the same time has its own clear signature.

De Karel 2.0 was designed by ZZDP Architecten and built by contractor H&R Bouw. The systems were made by De Blaauw Installatietechniek and Terberg Totaal Installaties.

Should an apartment become available, we will announce this on our website, under the heading ‘For Rent’. We do not keep waiting lists.
