MAKRO store Amsterdam – New Work City concept
In the capital and most populous city of the Netherlands, good space is hard to find. So the MAKRO Store Amsterdam is a very promising site – it’s close to the centre, easily accessible and versatile.
The New Work City concept is a mixed-use solution that combines a wide range of different functions and areas of life into a vibrant, modern district. This enables a large number of synergies to emerge, as users inspire each other and new ideas form.
Visions for the future
A complete redesign of the site will take up to 20 years and requires forward-looking, flexible planning that takes account of present and future needs. The project will incorporate environmental, social and economic aspects in equal measure.
Welfare services – such as dietary advice for a healthy lifestyle, children’s day-care facilities, high-quality social spaces and support for new start-ups – build sustainable communities and an inspirational atmosphere, as do workshops and studios for co-working groups.
