The brick façades of 'brownstones', the chic residential buildings in Manhattan from early 1900's, was the inspiration for two slender towers in the heart of Amsterdam's financial district. The high and a lower tower allow the homes to take full advantage of sunlight and views. By placing the façade of the elevators a bit backwards, the highest tower appears to consist of two slender towers. Detailed masonry gives the building a strong appearance. The lobby area is brilliantly designed by Kate Hume- with a nod to Holland's iconic mid-century architect Dudok, mainly through a vertical tapestry of beautiful tiles.
Eye-catching chandeliers by Kaia and Atollo table lamps by Oluce give the warm, welcoming feel of a five-star hotel lobby. This is further complemented by Modular wall lamps and recessed LED cove lighting.
The residents enjoy a wonderful view of the city from their apartments, and a true penthouse feeling is created by huge windows.
