Memeleiland 152’s location borders the Houthaven Park on one side, and on the other you can look straight out over one of the Houthaven’s picturesque canals – which also means there won’t be any cars outside your house.

The kitchen also boasts a matt black Quooker, a Blum storage cupboard with eight drawers and attractive Hi-Macs worktops, also in matt black. Handy storage unit/pantry housing the connection for your washing machine, a CO2 extractor system and the meter cupboard. The two large bedrooms are located to the front, where they will look out over the soon-to-be-created Houthaven Park. Solid floor-to-ceiling doors have also been installed in these rooms.

The Houthaven has much more to offer than simply a place to live. A host of creative companies have already settled in the area, which is now also home to a primary school, a secondary school, a nursery, out-of-school care, a residential care home, a playgroup and a gym. And there is even more on the horizon. Trendy bars, atmospheric restaurants and cosy terraces will soon be lining the waterfront. You can reach Haarlemmerplein and De Jordaan in only five minutes by bicycle. Houthaven Amsterdam is set to become a very desirable hot spot in Amsterdam. Sustainability takes a high priority in Memeleiland. High-tech solutions have been incorporated into both your own home and the building’s communal areas to maximize your comfort. For the energy requirements of your home, we have adopted the principles of Trias Energetica, a cutting-edge sustainability strategy developed by Delft University of Technology. This winning combination of sustainable, energy-saving measures starts with a shell with a very high thermal insulation value and brings in renewable energy from the district heating network (dramatically reducing CO2 emissions) and on-site energy generation. Whether you want to heat up or cool down, the indoor climate is under your complete control. Industrial residual heat is used for both the underfloor heating and your running hot water. A thermostat gives you full control of how warm or cool you want your home to be. The same underfloor system that heats your home can also lower the indoor temperature with cold water from the IJ. This approach to cooling is highly energy efficient, keeping temperatures down by ensuring that the building’s structure does not heat up.
The roof of the complex has been fitted with solar panels, and as a resident you will have exclusive use of several of these panels: an ideal way to save on your energy costs.
This apartment complex is not only exceptional in its design; Memeleiland is also remarkable for its sustainable features. Not only will you be living in a light and comfortable home, but you will also be investing in a property that looks to the wider world and our children’s future: 100 per cent climate neutral. Sustainability was a primary concern in the construction process, where the focus was placed firmly on sustainable use of energy and materials. Memeleiland is a low-traffic, green and sustainable island on the IJ, a mere stone’s throw from Amsterdam city centre. In short, this is a fantastic place to live.
