From luxury penthouses to “friends” concept apartments
B’Mine is a multifunctional building with commercial space on the ground floor, indoor parking, a bicycle parking facility and 147 apartments. The apartments come in three types, and include four luxury penthouses with spectacular views over the city and 50 subsidised rental apartments with breathtaking panoramic views of their own. Paul de Ruiter Architects designed 52 of the apartments according to a new “friends” concept conceived by urban and property development company AM and MN. These apartments can accommodate two one-person households, and are designed in such a way that the paired inhabitants each have a spacious bedroom of comparable size, and share a living room, kitchen and bathroom. In addition to the penthouses, the subsidised rental apartments and the “friends” apartments, the B'Mine Tower also offers 41 apartments for rent via the private rental market. By offering this mix of rental concepts, B'Mine stands as an acknowledgment and response to the city’s diverse accommodation needs and establishes itself as an active participant in the urban regeneration of Amsterdam North.
