An historical transformation. Three former water purification silos on Zeeburgereiland in Amsterdam have been given a second life.

Mixed-use to the max. The Silos are a city in themselves. In addition to the residential program, it offers a complete range of urban facilities: from hotel to film house, from grand cafe and high-end offices to a dance school.

Each silo has its own identity and public programming. Together they form a striking whole. Bridges between The Silos connect the buildings with each other forming an impressive public roof park.

Embedded in the neighbourhood

Public rooftop park. At a height of twenty meters you'll find a unique public roof landscape, connected by two footbridges. It houses the outdoor cinema and the grand café’s terrace where residents and visitors can enjoy the fantastic panoramic city view.

The Silo's were rewarded with an BREEAM outstanding sustainability score of 92%.
