Amsterdam has a brand-new icon. Q Residences brings fresh charisma to the Buitenveldert district. The striking design language, unusual approach and meticulous finishing make everyday living here an extraordinary experience. Q Residences offers a unique opportunity to live surrounded by green spaces. It is flanked by the stately plane trees of the impressive Gijsbrecht van Aemstel Park, overlooks leafy, tree-lined Buitenveldert and is just a stone’s throw from the expansive Amsterdamse Bos, so ‘green living’ is pretty much the key here. Or it would be, if the congenial architecture and carefully orchestrated plan were not just as attention-grabbing. On a prominent corner of Buitenveldertselaan and Van Nijenrodeweg, Quartz and Qube represent a fresh vision: world-class architecture in Amsterdam, linked by a beautiful plaza with year-round greenery and an underground parking garage.



Q Residences is the first European project designed by Studio Gang, the leading architectural firm from Chicago. Studio Gang approaches architecture in an innovative way – social function and the way nature is treated in the city play a role in the design process, as well as aesthetics. All these elements come together in Q Residences: an urban sculpture with a cosmopolitan look. The well-known Dutch architectural firm Rijnboutt is the co-architect. Piet Oudolf worked with Deltavormgroep on the interpretation of the plaza. And Studio Piet Boon is responsible for the housing layout and parts of the interior.


‘Hers’: a six-metre-high, bronze-cast sculpture reflecting the Q Residences logo, is a striking feature on the plaza, where it marks the entrances to Quartz and Qube. Among other things, the artwork by Studio Job symbolises the creativity of the female architect.

Art is an important part of Q Residences. From the street, a graphic vertical black-white-gold pattern attracts attention. It is the artful window covering, visible through the glass facade, that design studio Inside Outside created for Quartz’s lobby. On the ceiling, the one-of-a-kind bronze light sculpture GingerBlimp by designer/artist Frederik Molenschot pleasantly lights up the lobby. A nearly five-metre-high black black and white painting by Steve te Pas completes the look.
