The area of Kop Zuidas in Amsterdam holds a particular position between Plan Zuid by Berlage to the north and the adjacent open Amstelland landscape. With a semi-open block structure the area fits between the 'classic' closed perimeter block structure of the city and the modern extensions of later dates. Residential and commercial building Sud Amsterdam stands prominently at a square in the centre of this part of the Zuidas. Along the square the building presents itself with shops and workspaces on ground floor and comfortable apartments above. The floor plans of the apartments are arranged with characteristic rooms enabling a variety of ways of living. The façade resonates with the monumental brickwork of the Plan Zuid and is characterized by careful use of brick patterns and expressive bay windows with loggias. The panoramic windows contribute significantly to the quality of living at this remarkable place in the city.
