The Amsterdam University of Applied Science has built a unique city campus on the Wibaut street corner: the Amstel campus. A vibrant place where students, teachers and city connect. The new construction of the Wibaut and Muller-Lulofs buildings is part of this Amstel campus.
The two multifunctional buildings combine education with sport, residence and meeting others. Construction of the residential buildings is commissioned by housing cooperative De Key.

The project consists of two buildings, the Muller-Lulofs building (approximately 20.000m2 GFA) and the Wibaut building (approximately 48.000m2 GFA), constructed in Amsterdam’s historical city centre.

The Muller-Lulofs building is situated in between the Wibaut street, the Tilanus street and the Second Boerhaave street. This building consists of a multifunctional education building, 154 student apartments and a sports hall in a basement that can be repurposed. The education building provides access to the sheltered courtyard garden.

The Wibaut building, situated on the Wibaut street, is built on a newly constructed two story underground parking garage. Next to its function as an educational building, an additional 60 student apartment are realised on the Van Musschenbroek street side. The Wibaut building is a remarkable building with an open and transparent appearance. A sprinkler system has been installed, and a geothermal heat pump is also a part of the plan.

The project has been realised in phases, with the Wibaut building constructed after the Muller-Lulofs building. During the project, great attention was given to communication with the local residents.

The construction works were procured on the basis of concept-production information, after which the design has been optimized through the intensive cooperation between the designers and the contractors. This is a procedure which Aronsohn successfully employs in an increasing number of projects.
