Living & Working in LYCKA
Young pioneers in Sloterdijk!
LYCKA gives space to pioneers, with a focus on young artists. In the residential tower, 28 apartments are developed for talented Academy leavers. When they have to move out of their student accommodation, it is often difficult for them to find affordable accommodation in Amsterdam. Thanks to LYCKA, these starters do not have to leave the capital immediately after graduating and talent from outside the city can also get a chance to settle here. In addition, the 7 studios in thebroedplaats provide artists and start-up creative companies with a place to set up their practice in a dynamic district full of growth opportunities.
Multifunctional LYCKABuurtkamer (neighborhood space)
Sloterdijk Centrum will be a diverse neighborhood with homes, innovative and creative companies, restaurants, cafe’s and other facilities. With the influx of residents, there is also a need to meet each other in the neighborhood. The LYCKABuurtkamer is the cultural heart of the neighborhood, where people can come together and where activities and events are organized, both by the artist community and by local residents. Think of exhibitions, presentations, creative meet-ups, workshops, lessons, etc.
Op www.lycka.amsterdam you find more information about the space and the activities.

The artists may give their own interpretation to the 5th, 6th, 7th and part of the 8th floor. From the shared roof garden they have a view of the neighborhood that is rising around them. The broedplaats is located on the ground floor and the first floor and consists of seven particularly bright and spacious studios and a public space that is set up as a neighborhood meeting room. Urban Resort manages the creative broedplaats and does the recruitment and selection for the creative broedplaats and also for the artists’ residences.
