Residential Building Pontsteiger

Residential Building Pontsteiger is the new iconic Amsterdam landmark in the Houthaven-district (the former timber port). Prominently situated alongside (and almost within) the IJ-river, this 90 meters high building with its extraordinary, award winning architectural shape, represents the new gate to Amsterdam. It houses 66 high-end apartments in the horizontal top layer and 252 rental apartments, as well as corporate and parking spaces. Pontsteiger’s remarkable design, with its horizontal U-shape -almost floating over 4 pavillions- and a vertical U-shape has been rewarded with several national and international awards, like the Building Smart 2018 Award (BIM) and the Brick Award (architecture). In this building the highest demands on comfortclass, resonances and vibrations, impact sound insulation, impact and burglary resistance have been applied. The drywall solutions were fully designed in BIM.
