A unique object! It is a very luxurious penthouse of approx. 250 m² with a passenger lift in the 'Bickershoek' apartment complex, built in 2002, designed by HM Architects. The house is located on the top floor of the complex which is located at the head of the Bickerseiland, between the water of the Westerdok and the Realengracht, with truly stunning views over the Westerdok, the harbor 'Marina Westerdok', the Jordaan and the IJ.
Bickershoek is a project of 8 apartments, designed by HM Architects. The building is made up of solid and closed volumes, which are completely open on the waterfront. All other facades are made entirely of wood and have blinds / shutters that can be opened horizontally or vertically. Wood has been chosen because it fits the environment which has a long history in shipbuilding. In addition, the wood is tight but not too heavy and in terms of color it corresponds well with the typical red roof tiles of the roofs in the area.
The Grote Bickersstraat is located on the Bickerseiland, which together with the Prinseneiland and the Realeneiland, form the 'Western Islands'. These islands, in the center of Amsterdam, form a unique small world in itself, traditionally characterized by warehouses and shipyards. Although located in the heart of Amsterdam, the Bickers Island is remarkably quiet; a cozy, historic, almost village neighborhood in the bustling city center.
The Grote Bickersstraat is within walking distance of the Jordaan, the Westerpark and perhaps the nicest shopping street of the city: the Haarlemmerdijk. In addition, you will find plenty of entertainment and recreational opportunities in the vicinity, including The Movies, the oldest cinema in Amsterdam. At the adjoining Marina Westerdok you can possibly store a boat.
The apartment is easily accessible by public transport. On the Westerdoksdijk and at the beginning of the Grote Bickersstraat, between Tussen de Bogen, there are stops for various bus lines. Amsterdam Central Station is a 5-minute walk away where you will find stops for tram, bus and metro connections to all parts of the city. Via the S103 and S102 via the newly constructed Spaarndammer tunnel you can reach the A10 and A5 motorways within 15 minutes by car.
As part of the Third Explanation (1610-15), the western islands, Vooreiland, Middeneiland and Achtereiland were constructed. In 1631, Jan Bicker bought the Foreland of the city and laid a shipyard yard there. The Vooreiland, for example, comes to its current name Bickerseiland. Also the other two islands got a new name over the years: Back Island became the "Realeneiland" and Middeneiland became the Prinseneiland. The new islands were in principle intended for storage, industry and shipping companies, but from the beginning of the 18th century, more and more houses appeared, especially on the Bickerseiland. Since the construction of the railway embankment between Westerdok and Westerpoort (1878) for the railway line Den Helder - Amsterdam, the Bickers island is officially no longer an island.
