location Amsterdam
function housing, social housing
contributed by Naomi

The Gibraltar housing building has 11 floors. On the ground floor are 6 living/work houses that have a double height. Above these, from the second until the 11th floor, lay 60 apartments in the sector social rent. The facades of the building are not typical for social housing. The image of this building, deriving from the cool and systematic façade, is more that one of an office. No individual apartment is recognized in this repetition of floor-height windows. The light, creamy colour of the concrete contrasts with the mainly dark colours used in the Eastern Harbour district. The façade on the north side, near the waterfront is less strict. This is where the main entrance is located. Here a large glass membrane opens up the interior where coloured corridors and interior balconies are visible.

How to get there? Bus 42 from Central Station of from station Muiderpoort, stop at Kattenburg. Tram 26 leaves from central station and stops Kattenburgerstraat, just in front of the building. From central station it's about 15 minutes walking, exit the station at the north side (water front) and go right (east ward), walk along the water until you reach the new buildings on your left.
