The Oost­poort Senior Hous­ing Com­plex is located in Oost­poort; a new neigh­bour­hood in the east of Ams­ter­dam near Muider­poort Sta­tion.
Oost­poort Senior Hous­ing pro­vides a wide range of care lev­els, that devi­ates from the tra­di­tional model for senior hous­ing. The project is focused on indi­vid­ual care require­ments, allow­ing res­i­dences the flex­i­bil­ity to per­son­al­ize their liv­ing expe­ri­ence based on their needs. There are three dif­fer­ent kinds of care lev­els and the build­ing is also divided into three sec­tions to pro­vide the best pos­si­ble liv­ing envi­ron­ment for the dif­fer­ent res­i­dents.
Each sec­tion has its own entrance. Dif­fer­ent shared and open spaces in the build­ing con­tribute to the inter­ac­tion between the res­i­dents. There are cas­cad­ing can­tilevered bal­conies that pro­vide the oppor­tu­nity of inter­ac­tion between res­i­dents as well as the occu­pants on the street. Another space that pro­vides inter­ac­tion, is the court­yard. The more pri­vate court­yard is not vis­i­ble from the street and is eas­ily acces­si­ble for every­one in the build­ing.
The set­ting of this type of build­ing in a viva­cious part of the city is unique, so the res­i­dents are not iso­lated from the city life. Now they are still able to make use of all the dif­fer­ent facilites in the area together with the other res­i­dents of the neighbourhood.
