For the past decade, Wenslauer Street in the Amsterdam Bellamy neighbourhood has been undergoing a metamorphosis. In collaboration with the city council, the Stadgenoot housing corporation and various individuals, architects and small developers, a dozen dwellings have been renovated, and more than ten old houses have been demolished and replaced by new buildings.

The Bellamy neighbourhood is a neighbourhood where living and working have always been mixed, leading to a wide variety of buildings in the area. In 2011, M3H restored a house and built a new ‘steel’ house. In 2013, five M3H-designed dwellings have been built: two houses with gardens and three small apartments.

The ensemble consists of three wooden houses carefully integrated into the profile of Wenslauer Street. The houses are abstract in detail and have a self-assured look that suits the street’s diversity.

The facades and sloping roofs are covered with untreated FSC certified Sucupira Amarela wood. The project was commissioned by Sticks & Stones Developments Ltd., and built by Structure Ltd.
