Who or what is Woonwolk?

In consultation with current residents, De Woonwolk aims to preserve the already existing beauty and diversity of Noord. The communal areas, which will become part of our home on lot 19E, will be shared with our neighbors based on the three core Woonwolk values: community, sustainability and art & culture.

If you get in now you have a say in:

The architecture of the building

The lay-out of the apartments

The function and content of the common spaces

What do we offer you?

Living community

The nicest community where you will live together.... laughter, tears, love – it will all be there!

Shared spaces   

5 common rooms: 2 large rooms for dance, music, theater, film etc.. 3 multifunctional common spaces.



The apartments will be 47m2 for normal members and 70m2 for families. There will be 53 apartments in total.

Buiksloterham, Papaverweg 141

The Neighborhood

The lot is located in the northwestern part of Buiksloterham. In the coming years, Buiksloterham will continue to develop from an industrial business park to a circular urban district focused on living and working. The programmatic and urban planning frameworks of Buiksloterham are set out in the Recalibration of the Investment Decision adopted by the City Council on November 10, 2020. Four challenges are central to Buiksloterham. These form the basis for the developments in Buiksloterham. These four tasks are densification, circular district, productive district and undivided district.

The lots that will become available are located in the northern part of Buiksloterham close to the Johan van Hasselt Canal. Lots 19E and F are part of lot 19. On lot 19E and F, two housing cooperatives will be realized with medium-priced rental housing. Around the plan area, several lots have been and will be developed in the coming years and a solid densification will take place. A tender has also been issued on lot 19 for the realization of housing, social facilities, productive business spaces and other non-residential functions. A school will also be built on lot 19.

On the outside it is adjacent to a school with a communal square; on the inside of the lots there is a shared outdoor space adjacent to the outdoor space of Lot 19C
