NDSM Wharf Amsterdam

NDSM Wharf Amsterdam Noord

The Former Dutch Shipbuilding Company (NDSM) is situated directly adjacent to the Amsterdam IJ. Not that long ago this was the place where world class quality ships were built. Nowadays it is one of the trendiest hotspots in the world.

In the next few years the former shipyard will be transformed into a 24/7 city district. With its industrial monuments, it’s raw look it is the newest hotspot and home base for major festivals in the city. It will transform to a place for living, leisure and entrepreneurship, with a mix in functions.

De Lasloods – Industrial Monument

At the entrance of NDSM the 22 metres high former Shipyard Building – De Lasloods welcomes you. It is the Cathedral of NDSM. Here the ship parts were welded together and transformed to gigantic ships. The ships were taken through the large blue doors to the slipway.
There they were prepared for their new ocean travels. This monument still has all the historical features and atmosphere. You can actually feel the real NDSM here.

De LasloodsProperty owner Mediawharf Monumenten bv wants to research the possibilities for a successful and feasible redevelopment of this monument through co creation. We want to carefully bring this building back to life. It is quite a complex challenge to develop a feasible business case. The “NDSM Cathedral” will always have a mix in programming. It will be an inspiring place for visitors and users of NDSM. – Steffan Kunst, Mediawharf Monumenten B.V.

The important stakeholders, among which the city council, Department for Monuments and the National Service for Heritage all are very involved in it’s future. A future which can mean so much for the NDSM wharf as a whole.

In close cooperation with the owner, and stakeholders De Stedenfabriek has started the co-creation proces. We all have one goal in common: Waking up this Cathedral and giving it a beautiful new future.
