Wandering through the city, Renaissance period, neo-Baroque and Art Deco design are evident in Amsterdam’s beautiful architecture.
But, it is the intricate brickwork of the Amsterdam School movement that really left its mark on the city. The Amsterdam School (Amsterdamse School) was born between 1910 and 1930, ands its architecture structures are characterised by the use of brick for structure and design, a rounded appearance, decorative masonry, wrought iron accents, spires and ‘ladder’ windows.
The style has roots in Expressionist architecture, borrowing elements from the Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) and Art Deco design aesthetic. The aim was to create a total architectural experience, so designers paid great attention to both the interior and the exterior of each building. Due to the socialist ideals of its founders, the Amsterdam School style was originally often applied to housing estates for the working class, government institutions and schools. Often situated just a few minutes walk from the city center, the so-called Amsterdam School architecture neighborhoods include a number of lovingly renovated fully equipped Art-Deco apartments.
Because of their unique style and inherent finish many of these buildings have since been classified as monuments, and private owners have renovated the apartments situated in these buildings to a high standard to relect the original details and also accommodate modern tastes and technology. Due to the popularity of this neighbourhood and the love with which landlords have renovated their homes, apartments in the Art-Deco neighbourhoods of Amsterdam are now available for rent for periods of a few weeks to a few months.
