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.
