Robust & sophisticated

High End is a small-scale, sustainable building with 14 apartments ranging from 47 sqm to 92 sqm and two apartments combining residential and home-office use of 140 sqm and 153 sqm. The look and feel is robust, transparent and sophisticated due to a wealth of glass and gold anodized aluminum. Floor-to-ceiling windows allow daylight to stream in. 

Ceiling heights of approximately 2.80 meters on the upper levels and 3.20 meters on the ground floor lend the apartments a unique sense of space. All apartments include south-facing outdoor spaces and overlook a lush inner courtyard. Parking is available on assigned spots in the nearby parking garage. Bicycles can be stored safely in the indoor High End bicycle garage. 

The High End building incorporates the very latest in energy efficiency standards. Every apartment includes its own solar panels on the roof. Rain water is collected and reused to water the plants on the balconies.  

The High End building is expected to see completion in the end of 2021.

High End apartments also allow for purchase of a parking space in the nearby parking garage on Distelweg. This means that the neighborhood itself will remain low-traffic. This, too, is part of the ambition of the designers of this new residential neighborhood.


Ambitious neighborhood 

High End is on Distelweg in Amsterdam Noord; in between Eye (10) and NDSM wharf (4). This-on trend, artistic part of Amsterdam is similar to New York's Williamsburg. Scroll down to see where the area's hotspots are relative to High End.

The NDSM-grounds with shops such as Bbrood and restaurants like Pllek, Noorderlicht, Loetje and SmaaQt is a mere 5-minute bicycle ride away. Van der Pekstraat (5) and the surrounding area are home to design, artisanal and creative shops and Café Modern. Van Dijk en Co (3) is heaven on earth for vintage furniture buffs. 

Groceries are available from Van der Pek market (5), shopping center Mosveld (6) and Landmarkt (8). The area offers ample culinary choices, with restaurants such as Rolling Rock (2) Stork (7), and Dish aan de Kade (9). To enjoy more natural surroundings, Noorderpark (12) and the organic vegetable garden 50/50 green (11) are wonderful options.

Next to the Buiksloterweg ferry (10) are Amsterdam's architectural gems Eye Filmmuseum, A’dam lookout and restaurant Tolhuistuin. 
High End is just 10 minutes by bicycle from the ferry on Buiksloterweg with 24hr service to Central Station. The A10 beltway is a mere 5-minute drive away. The ferry to Houthavens/Pontsteiger (1) is also nearby the High End building (1).

XOOMlab-colleagues (from left to right) Joost Vorstenbosch, Harvey Otten, Rene de Prie, and Dirk Jan van Wieringhen Borski are responsible for the concept, design and development of the building. 

High End is being developed by Kraaipan B.V., existing from the four colleagues and Vink Bouw. Previously Kraaipan B.V transformed the Jan Ligthartschool in Amsterdam in to apartments.

Geometrical lines
For the High End design, this XOOMlab team was inspired by artist Jan Schoonhoven, one of the Netherland's principal abstract artists of the 20th century. Schoonhoven created objective art which followed geometrical and minimalist principles. His geometrical vertical linework is reflected in the High End facades. The architects lent the minimalist forms a luxury appearance by opting for gold anodized aluminum. Consequently, the building exudes a sense of warmth and sophistication.
