A family home: convenient, comfy, and designed for the whole family
We are a family with three boys, living on Java-eiland, a neighborhood in Amsterdam (literally, "Java Island"). It is located on a peninsula, surrounded on three sides by water and on the east by the KNSM Island neighbourhood.
The peninsula was created by dredging water at the end of the 19th century and was used for shipping services. The name "Java Island" was given to the area when it was designated for housing in the 1990s. In the 1990s the area was transformed into residential units according to a master plan by well-known Amsterdam architect Sjoerd Soeters. As for transport, tram line 10 terminates at Azartplein (Azart Square), on the eastern edge of Java-eiland. The city-center is only 10 minutes away by tram or bus.
Notable architecture includes four small canals with post-modernist canal houses from various architects, cycle and pedestrian bridges by Guy Rombouts and Monica Droste, and at the Azartplein two building by the Swiss architectural firm Diener & Diener.
