Want to live overlooking a park? Or would you prefer a canal? Now you can have both. And in Amsterdam! Memeleiland 42 faces Houthaven Park on one side and the beautiful canals of the new Houthaven district on the other. This attractive apartment, with a floor area of 100 square metres, has just been completed and offers an excellent layout with a broad living room, two full-size bedrooms and a spacious balcony on the canal side. It also features a large, fully-tiled bathroom with tub, walk-in shower and double washbasin, a spacious open kitchen and floor-to-ceiling interior doors. Parking is safe and easy in the underground garage, where you will also find your own storage room.
Houthaven is fast becoming Amsterdam’s new hot spot. Many creative businesses have already opened in the neighbourhood, along with a primary school, a secondary school, a nursery, an after-school club, a playgroup and a health centre. And there is more to come. On the way are trendy bars, cosy restaurants and relaxing waterside terraces. Moreover, bustling Haarlemmerplein and the Jordaan district are just a five-minute cycle away.
Sustainability comes first on Memeleiland. Both the apartment and the communal areas incorporate advanced technical solutions for maximum comfort. Your new home is designed according to the “Trias Energetica” principle, a highly effective combination of energy-saving measures: high-value building insulation, renewable district heating (which reduces carbon-dioxide emissions) and energy generation on site.
Warmer or cooler? You decide. Residual industrial heat (district heating) delivers both hot water and thermostat-controlled heating, underfloor for maximum efficiency. To lower the indoor temperature, the system uses cold water from the nearby River IJ. As well as being very energy-efficient, this keeps your home at a comfortable temperature all year round.
Solar panels have been installed on the roof of the complex. As a resident, you can make exclusive use of a number of these to cut your energy bills.
This high degree of sustainability, also extended to the use of materials and energy during the construction process, makes the Memeleiland complex unique for more than just its design. Not only is your new home light and comfortable, it has been built with an eye for the world around us. In fact, it is 100 per cent climate neutral.
Memeleiland has been developed as a sustainable, green, largely traffic-free oasis on the IJ, yet not far from the city centre of Amsterdam. In short, a fantastic place to live.
