Luxurious apartment with an elevator and garden at the Vondelpark
Living in one of the most beautiful places in Amsterdam
Next to the beautiful Vondelpark in Amsterdam Oud-Zuid, developer Cobraspen Groep has delivered five stylish apartments. The Sakura House is finished with state-of-the-art materials such as black, steel facades and a smart home system. This beautiful redevelopment from office building to luxury apartment complex owes its name to the Sakura tree that stood in the garden in the sixties. The Japanese influence can now also be found in the surrounding garden.
Living at the Vondelpark
The Koningslaan is located in the attractive and very quiet Willemsparkbuurt, a stone's throw from the bustling Amsterdam city life. From your home you can walk straight into the beautiful Vondelpark, but the Cornelis Schuytstraat is also within walking distance. The lively mix of traditional local shops, exclusive boutiques, cozy cafés and stylish restaurants makes "De Schuyt" one of the most beautiful and popular places in Amsterdam.
Redevelopment Sakura House
The Cobraspen Group, together with the leading agency Kentie & Partners Architects, has realized the design for the transformation of this office building into stylish apartments. These well-known names in the field of high-quality restorations, renovations and new construction in a historical context already have many projects to their name.
Keeping the original design in mind, the developer Cobraspen Group has given the building a facelift. The façade has been given a quality boost thanks to the addition of hand-molded brick and the horizontal joints have been deepened and made darker. The round windows that are so typical of the 60’s are actually new and a nice reference to the round lift windows. On the other side, the aluminum façade has been replaced by a much slimmer steel façade and spacious balconies have been added.
The spacious floors have been redesigned. For example, the building has been given a spacious basement and a large terrace has been created for the penthouse on the roof. The characteristic marble staircase has also been preserved, just like the elevator with round windows that was so characteristic of the 1960’s.
A Smart Home
The Sakura apartments are equipped with all modern conveniences and are equipped with a Niko Home Control system. With this system you can, among other things, easily control the lighting, heating and security from your smartphone or tablet. All these innovations ensure that you live comfortably in the Sakura House.
This apartment on the ground floor has a basement and a spacious garden. You enter the common hall and there you have direct access to your own apartment. Through the spacious hall with toilet and meter cupboard you enter the spacious living room through a double french door. The windows overlooking the garden provide a pleasant amount of light into the home. The spacious kitchen can be reached both through the hall and through the living room. The first bedroom is also located on the ground floor.
Through the stairs in the hall you have access to your basement and there you enter a second hall. From this room there is access to the two bedrooms, the first bathroom and a separate toilet. The spacious master bedroom has a bathroom en suite, which is equipped with a corner bath, walk-in shower and a double sink. Both bedrooms have access to a sunken terrace. The basement also has a space for the washing machine, dryer and a storage room.
The Japanese garden
The two-storey apartment has a spacious Japanese-style garden. This is a reference to the 60s when the Japanese style was very popular. Central in the design is the Sakura tree, this beautiful blossom tree blooms a few weeks in the spring and in Japan this natural beauty is a true spectacle. In addition to the beautiful shape of this tree, it also stands for joy, renewal, beauty and tranquility. The same values can be found in the Sakura House.
