The eye-catcher of the development of Amsterdam’s Northern IJ-Oever is the unique Kraanspoor project. It is one of the first projects to be realized in this new development area ‘River IJ North Bank’, which will be turned into a new combined living and working area. Ontwerpgroep Trude Hooykaas designed a 3-story building with over 10,000 m² unique working space with a phenomenal view on the river IJ. It is build on a historic concrete structure, with the first working floor 15 metres high. Kraanspoor displayes the interaction between industrial heritage and state-of-the-Art architecture as no other. One of the most remarkable features of Kraanspoor is the completely transparent climate façade with double glazing.
